Ontario Launches new Addictions Recovery Fund | TLN Connects

Ontario Launches new Addictions Recovery Fund | TLN Connects

The Vitanova Foundation in Vaughan will get 11 new supportive beds to help people with addictions and concurrent disorders and the Addiction Services of Central Ontario will get 6 new withdrawal management beds.

The news comes after the Ontario Government revealed it is investing $90 million to immediately expand addictions services and increase the number of treatment beds.

Associate Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, the Honourable Michael Tibollo spoke with us about the effects substance abuse can have on a person when there is a lack of support and resources readily available. “People that want help, need to have the help — when they ask for it”, states Minister Tibollo.

The funding is going to help the continuum of care, improve supportive services, and help mitigate substance abuse all over Ontario.
