Hamilton, Ontario Drug Rehab Centers
Drug Rehab Services is a no-cost referral agency in Hamilton and all over Ontario and Canada for drug and alcohol addiction. Calling us is free of charge at 1-877-254-3348. We have helped thousands of persons getting help in the following detox and drug rehab services:
Drug treatment centers will be found through Hamilton in insufficient numbers. You'll also find government-funded drug rehab centers with the Drug and Alcohol Registry of Treatment. However, these rehab centers usually have a long waiting list with quite a few administrative procedures. There are some non-public drug rehabilitation centers where individuals can be admitted the same day they come to the centers and find the help they need. Private drug rehab centers in Ontario are often a better option and obtain much better results with difficult cases who relapsed numerous times. Public funded drug rehab centers usually wait for the person to be willing to do the drug treatment and sometimes even ask them to be sober the week before going into the drug rehab center. That is often a problem for drug addicts. But what about the families with a loved one that don't want to follow any drug addiction treatment? The non-public drug recovery centers have the staff to take care of such individuals. Their staff often has their own past drug addiction experience, which makes them understand even better the individuals' needs.
Hamilton has too few drug rehab facilities in proportion to its population. It has one inpatient rehab center for men only and one rehab center for women only. Both facilities are for adults, and we could not find any facilities for teens. In large cities, very often, there is a problem with teen drug and alcohol addiction, and the resources are pretty much non-existent. There are only 10 facilities in Ontario for teenagers and none in the 10 largest cities of Ontario.

Marijuana and alcohol are the most used and accessible drugs. It is also true for the general population. Lately, there has been an increase in crystal meth use and crack cocaine addiction.
There are two residential treatment facilities in Hamilton and 4 that are outpatient based. There are also Ontario drug rehab centers around the city of Hamilton that can be suitable for an addict.
