There are many ways to connect with detox services. Candidates can refer themselves. Candidates can ask a loved one to help them with their referral. Candidates can be referred by another community agency, or through Access Central.

• Access Central Referral: call Access Central at 1-866-658-1221 for a telephone assessment and to book a detox intake appointment. Please note: Individuals who mostly use alcohol, have a history of seizures, or who are currently pregnant must call Access Central, to be assessed for a referral to the most suitable detox centre.

Potential treatment clients can initiate their own application. Individuals can include loved ones in their referral / intake process as long as the potential client is an active participant in the process.

Community agencies, court workers, correctional staff, and other service providers, please contact our Intake Counsellor to arrange a release of information if you would like to participate in the referral / intake process.
