Rehabilitation centres:

Rehabilitation centres serve people who have a physical disability, an intellectual disability (ID), a pervasive development disorder (PDD), an addiction problem (alcohol, drugs, gambling) or behavioural, psychosocial or family difficulties. Generally speaking, rehabilitation centres offer adaptation, rehabilitation, social integration and accompaniment, as well as support services for family and friends. Their services may be provided on the centres’ premises, in schools, at work or at home, as need be. In Montréal, there are 14 rehabilitation centres, five of which are private.
