The vast majority within the population in Ontario lives in the Greater Toronto Area, and because of this, there is an on-going homeless problem and people battling addiction along with substance abuse issues. Throughout all of Ontario, there are many different drugs and alcohol treatment resources available to help addicts and homeless people struggling with addiction. Drug Rehab Services has provided just over five different listings for shelters located in Ontario; located near major cities like Ottawa, Toronto, and Hamilton, these shelters are able to provide temporary lodging and meals for people in need, including addicts. The vast majority of these shelters are set up as residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers that are able to help male and female addicts, including youth and First Nations people. Most of these shelters are funded privately and through government grants and local fundraising but are able to provide effective resources to help people in need. Shelters are required in all cities and towns, as homelessness is an on-going issue and problem concurrently with drug and alcohol abuse. Many homeless people struggle with addiction and are not in a position to afford help and seek out the right kind of resources, and this is why shelters are set up to help these individuals achieve a sober and healthy life.

Marcel Gemme

More Info

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people.
