Addiction Services of Thames Valley is a community based service. Our agency operates in co-operation with local addiction, mental health and health care providers, through the Thames Valley region. The agency is incorporated and responsible to a voluntary Board of Directors. The Directors are elected from a cross section of human service organizations, healthcare, businesses and the three counties of Thames Valley. We offer service in Middlesex, Elgin and Oxford counties in several locations. We can be found in London, Strathroy (Middlesex), St. Thomas, Aylmer and West Lorne (Elgin), and Woodstock, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg (Oxford). In Ingersoll we work in partnership with the Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner Led Clinic (INPLC).

We provide screening, assessment, treatment planning and addiction treatment services to persons who are concerned about substance use, problem gambling, and other behavioural concerns. We provide support, education and treatment for family members.

Health Equity and Our Services

At ADSTV, we respect the differences and the unique needs of individuals and groups who are from the same or different cultures. Staff members are expected to address the needs of clients and their families with cultural competency and a health equity lens. ADSTV supports the staff members in developing and maintaining cultural competency. All community members are welcome at ADSTV. We respect the diversity in the local community and are aware that our clients will bring specific needs related to gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, ability, culture, language or other needs. We are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgender positive. If our programs cannot address the specific needs of clients or callers, then we redirect callers to the appropriate resource in the community. ADSTV staff members participate in training and ongoing staff development in order to better understand the issues that all clients and family members bring to us. ADSTV has an ongoing commitment to the development of new skills in the screening, assessment and treatment of substance use, problem gambling, and other behavioural concerns for clients with diverse needs. Our Board of Directors supports us in our approach to deliver quality services to our community.
