Youth Addiction & Concurrent Disorders Service

What We Offer:

The Youth Addiction and Concurrent Disorders Service (YACDS) offers treatment to youth (14 to 24 years) who have substance use challenges/concerns with or without concurrent mental health concerns, and to their families.

We work from a harm reduction model and take a flexible and individualized approach with youth. Treatment plans are based on a comprehensive assessment, focused on identifying treatment needs and issues in the areas of both substance use and mental health.

We offer a broad range of outpatient services for youth, including:

  • Individual and group counseling
  • case management
  • psychiatric consultation and follow-up
  • Family support and education 


We have 2 Section 23 TDSB academic day treatment programs (R.E.A.C.H. and Youth Day Hospital).  R.E.A.C.H  offers clients ages 16-21 years the opportunity to earn secondary school credits while participating in treatment.

Our Youth Day Hospital program will provide youth 14-18 years intensive outpatient support for stabilization, assessment and treatment towards preventing hospitalization, as well as transitioning to lower intensity services and supporting academic functioning.

Referrals: Youth can self-refer or be referred by a physician, hospital, community agency or school.
