About Us

South Cochrane Addictions Services Inc. (SCAS) was funded by the Ministry of Health under the Community Mental Health Branch in April 1986, and had it's official opening in January 1987. The agency filled a need for an addiction service, in South Cochrane, that had few restrictions on admission.

South Cochrane Addictions Services Inc.

SCAS is an assessment, referral, case management and community treatment agency for people of all ages in the South Cochrane district who have problems related to their own alcohol and drug use or gambling. The agency also offers services to family members of persons who have substance use or gambling related problems.

SCAS has satellite offices in Iroquois Falls and Matheson each of which is manned one day per week. SCAS also provides assessment and treatment planning to the inmates of Monteith Correctional Complex as part of its commitment to the Matheson area.

Since 1999, SCAS has had a contract with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto to provide assessment, education and treatment to persons convicted of driving while impaired in the Cochrane district (this is the Remedial Measures Program called "Back on Track" which is run on a fee for service basis).

In April 2010 we entered into a Scope of Service agreement with the Smoker's Helpline (Canadian Cancer Society) outlining the responsibilities of the Smoker's Helpline and South Cochrane Addictions Services with regard to the provision of the Fax Referral Program.
