Amethyst Women's Addiction Centre

For more than 37 years, Amethyst Women’s Addiction Centre has offered alternative addiction services to women living in the Ottawa area. Amethyst is a day treatment centre which offers individual and group counselling for substance use and problem gambling to women 18 and over. Amethyst is a non-profit women’s collective which offers its services for free to women living in the Ottawa region. Amethyst is grounded in the feminist belief that women’s experiences with alcohol, drugs, and gambling cannot be separated from their experiences and status as women. Amethyst makes direct links between the unequal position of women in society, the various forms of violence against women, and substance use or problem gambling.
