The centre closed suddenly Jan. 7, 2010.
ANDREW CHUNG/TORONTO STAR

From The National Post:

MONTREAL -- A private drug-and-alcohol rehab centre in the Laurentian town of Chertsey closed abruptly this month and left cocaine and heroin addicts to fend for themselves in Montreal.

The Clear Haven Centre, which advertised a "holistic approach to substance abuse treatment" amid "122 beautiful wilderness acres," shut its doors on Jan. 7. But as late as Dec. 31, staff members were still accepting new patients and demanding thousands of dollars in payment up front.

There are so many drug addicts and so few drug addiction centers and even those open often do not meet the standards and are forced to close down!!

Curing drug addiction is not an easy task. It needs a drug rehab that has all the best addiction treatments they can offer.
Thanks for the information.

When the Government realizes that the war on drugs has failed perhaps then will people who abuse drugs get the treatment they need as opposed to prison time.

Drug abuse is not criminal, it is a health issue. Those people need treatment, not prison time.

This is what happens when Centers like these are run by unprofessional people.I was employed by this place as a security night watch person.The rules they had were like the clients were in a prison system.The staff were treated like they were dogs by the Director.His people skills were next to none.All i can say is that this place was just there to make money.Also another thing! they still owe employees money and you can very well imagine how much they owe to the former clients who were in treatment at the time.This is totally unprofessional.I myself having extensive Security training was treated like I knew nothing.This director should hung out to dry in my opinion.

Drug Addiction is now a global problem. This social cancer has spread its poisonous claw all over the world. Frustration is the cause of this Addiction unemployment problem, political cataclysm, lack of family ties, lack of love affection etc gives rise to frustration. Again this addiction gives rise to social crimes. When the addicted can’t afford to buy drugs, they commit many kinds of social crimes. Like hijacking, looting, plundering, killing, robbery etc. Drugs bear a terrible effect on human body. They kill them slowly but surely. No physician can stop the changes that take place in the body of a drug addict. Drug addicted people feel drowsy, lose appetite and sleep. The skins of their bodies began change it’s color. Drugs also damage the brain and all internal function of the body.
However this curse shouldn’t be allowed to go on unchecked. At any cost we must get rid of this social cancer by highlighting its dangerous effects on human body and society. The remedy for drug addiction is not very easy. Greed of drug traders has grasped the whole world. Drug business should must be is punishable and the highest punishment is death sentence in any Country. This law must be enforced immediately. Our young generation must be aware of the dire consequence of drug abuse. Parents must be careful of their treatment to children. Feelings of security under loving parents may hinder children from being victims of drugs. Religious and social values must be taught from early childhood. When each and every person is sincere to drive this curse of drug addiction from the society, human beings can get rid of it.

The treatments for abuse alcohol programs were increasing in all over the centers but we should choose the right one for the purpose. The drug rehab riverside may solve some of the problems.

This is definitely a worth information to be spread. People must get the awareness on these issues. Addiction is a terrible disorder that may even spoil the life of the victim inflicted because addiction can manifest itself in a variety of ways. So choosing the proper treatment is the only way to get the wreck out of the disorder.

Regards,
Treatment Center
