Canadian Addiction Treatment Centres (CATC) is Canada’s largest provider of recovery programs and supports for substance use disorder and addictions. With over 80 outpatient and inpatient facilities across Canada, we offer comprehensive evidence-based care that meets people where they are in recovery, with compassion and respect.
Founded in 1995 in response to an immediate need for expanded access to accessible opioid use disorder treatment in Ontario, CATC has quickly become Canada’s leading community care partner supporting people experiencing substance use disorder and behavioural addictions, as well concurrent underlying mental health conditions.
Today, we help thousands of people every day live their best quality of life, at any stage of recovery.
Within our rapid access outpatient treatment centres, we offer a comprehensive care model designed to meet the broader health care needs of our patients. In addition to providing Methadone and Suboxone® assisted therapy, we offer harm reduction services, basic primary care, Hepatitis C and HIV Treatment, and counselling/case management.
