Alex* is addicted to benzodiazepines and alcohol and has seizures from alcohol withdrawals. His family fought hard to get him into the CAMH medically-supervised withdrawal unit. Both his family and the doctor at CAMH agree he needs long-term treatment for 90+ days, preferably a minimum of 6 months.

For a list of medically-supervised withdrawal units in Ontario:

June*, his mother, called us looking for treatment facilities fulfilling the criteria listed above. Below is the information we provided her.

Long-term treatment programs in Ontario for men can be found on this list:

Some of these programs are OHIP, while others are charitable. In other words, the programs listed having costs ranging from no-cost (public health coverage), moderate fees (charitable and nonprofit organizations), and full coverage required (private treatment).

There are many short-term programs on this list as well, including fee-for-service alternatives ranging between $8,000-$20,000 for approximately 30 days worth of treatment.

Before choosing a program, make sure you have the contact information for the addictions and mental health office in Ingersoll to get a referral for Alex (if it wasn’t completed at CAMH):
