Treatment services help individuals come to terms with their substance misuse, and make healthy changes that make it possible for them to reach their goals. Treatment services provide options along a continuum of care that support the differing needs of individuals. Services range in both duration and intensity of treatment. Ideally, assessments are completed with the individual struggling with substance misuse so that a shared plan is developed that includes the types of services best-suited to the person’s specific needs at that point in time. Services offered may include outpatient and peer-based counselling, methadone programs, daytime and residential treatment, supportive housing services and ongoing medical care.
