Topic 5 – Funding

Topic Progress:


Some treatment programs are privately run and do not receive funding from government sources. These programs are often more expensive and without extended health insurance coverage, can be outside of the financial means of many individuals and families in BC.

Publicly funded programs receive some of their funding through the health authorities thus individuals receiving income assistance or provincial disability benefits are eligible to attend with Ministry funding.

Low-income earners may be eligible for funding through the Accommodation Fee Subsidy program administered by the health authorities and can be accessed through substance use counsellors in each region.

Indigenous individuals and families may be eligible for funding through the National Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (NNADAP).
