Peel Addiction Assessment and Referral Centre
PAARC serves people who are concerned with their own or someone else’s involvement with alcohol, drugs or problem gambling.
Our mission is to significantly reduce the prevalence, harm and impact of addictions while improving the quality of life of those impacted by addiction. PAARC values a person-centered approach which includes a harm reduction philosophy. We respect that persons present with the skills they have developed to cope, and our role is to help them set and meet goals towards wellness. Our service applies professional clinical interactions, education, early intervention and comprehensive treatment planning and implementation to support a person to meet their identified goals.
PAARC’s services are free to our clients — PAARC is fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care,
through the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
