We know how difficult it is to seek help for someone who is struggling with substance use, problem gambling, or other behavioural concerns. We offer groups and programs that can assist you in supporting your loved one while practicing healthy ways to support yourself.

Are you concerned about someone’s substance use?

When someone in a family has an addiction, everyone is affected. Remember, it is not your fault. You did not cause it. You cannot control it. You cannot cure it. You can cope with it. You have choices.

Call us, email us or attend a walk-in intake. You can connect with us online initially. Contact us at intake@adstv.ca. Visit this page for walk-in intake details.

Please note: We are a scent-free organization. Please refrain from wearing scented products when attending any of our Points of Access.

Our Family Group provides family members with a forum in which to discuss successes and challenges in coping with their loved one’s addiction, healthy ways to support your loved one, and how to navigate through the addiction treatment system. Family Group is held the 3rd and 4th Monday of each month, from 5:30-7:30 pm. Please call 519 673 3242 ext. 222 to register as space is limited.
