Montreal Addiction Resources
This resource page is meant to provide addicts or the loved ones of addicts with relevant resources for drug or alcohol addiction treatment and rehabs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. While Montreal is home to a diverse population, it remains a predominantly French-speaking city, and even more so in other parts of the province. According to the 2017 Canadian census, only 9.6 percent of Quebec’s population speaks English as their mother-tongue. Because of this, it can be difficult to navigate and find quality English Montreal drug rehabs and alcohol rehabs.
Heritage Treatment Foundation
Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab in Montreal, Quebec
Heritage Treatment Foundation is a non-profit residential drug rehab and alcohol rehab located in picturesque rural Quebec, Canada, just one hour outside of Montreal. We take in only 12 residents at a time in order give each resident the attention they need.

Our programs take place over 30, 60, or 90 days, where we create individualized programs to begin your rehabilitation journey from alcohol addiction or drug addiction. Our approach is focused on evidence-based treatment, combining psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, and treating co-occurring mental health disorders.
