Get Help Today
Research shows that treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. We believe effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse, and we offer different treatment approaches to support this belief.
If you are concerned about drug or alcohol addiction, either in yourself or a loved one, don’t wait until you have hit rock bottom. You owe it to yourself or your loved one to get help today, before it is too late. Addiction is not something that will magically disappear. It will progressively get worse, and without proper treatment it can be fatal.
ICDO is a private clinic that is not supported by external organizations. Thus patients pay a monthly fee for non-MSP funded services. If a patient is receiving Social Assistance or PWD Disability benefits through the province of BC, a portion or all of this fee is subsidized by the Ministry of Social Development. Additional fees may be applicable for telehealth services.
