About & Services

Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services is a community-based treatment centre operating in Ottawa for more than 40 years.  Dedicated to supporting those impacted by substance use, behavioural addictions and related mental health challenges, the organization serves youth, young adults, adults and families. Rideauwood runs over 15 comprehensive programs that include prevention, education, individual counselling and group treatment.

One of our programs is The Youth Justice Program. A program specifically for Youth and Young Adults who are in conflict with the law and who are struggling with substance use, behavioural addictions or mental health issues.

Whether it’s substances, gambling, gaming or other compulsive behaviours; and whether individuals want to reduce their use, use in safer ways or eliminate their use entirely, Rideauwood counsellors are here to help. At Rideauwood there is no “right path” to recovery – only the path you choose.

Twice a year at Medallion Night, Rideauwood celebrates the accomplishments of clients and family members as they mark an important milestone in their recovery journey.
