Exciting Announcement: New CAMH.CA website is launching late April 2018

Addictions Services Centre for Addiction
and Mental Health

Drug Treatment Court Services

A substance use intervention model that combines drug addiction treatment with the judicial supervision of a “problem-solving” court, as an alternative to incarceration for adults who face criminal charges as a result of non-violent criminal activities related to their use of Opioids, Crack/Cocaine and Methamphetamines.

Clients participate in a structured outpatient program with extensive case management services, random urine screens and frequent court appearances. Upon successful completion of the program, which lasts a minimum of one year, clients receive a non-custodial sentence, rather than incarceration.

The DTC is a partnership between CAMH, the Ontario Court of Justice, the Ministry of the Attorney General and many community agencies. Entry into the program is voluntary: prospective clients need to apply through their lawyer and/or Duty Counsel at Old City Hall. The DTC Crown Attorney screens all applicants for eligibility.

Contact: For more information regarding legal considerations call the Duty Counsel Office at (416) 594-9300. For information regarding treatment call (416) 535-8501 ext. 33930 or 33942. Website:

Location: Treatment -- 100 Stokes Street, Bell Gateway Building, Addictions Program 3rd floor. (Queen/Ossington)  Court sessions -- Old City Hall, Toronto
