  • Addiction Canada ignores government orders to pay ex-employees

    Addiction Canada, a national firm that runs private addiction treatment facilities, has failed to pay thousands of dollars owed to ex-employees, despite orders to pay from government.

    Ex-employees say they don't understand why the Ontario government hasn't forced Addiction Canada and its CEO and director John Haines to pay, given the company is still in business and growing. The company runs three facilities in Ontario and has just opened two new centres in Alberta, where it is advertising new jobs.

    Women Into Healing accused of failing drug addicts by angry families

    Several families of addicts are calling for regulation of treatment facilities after paying tens of thousands of dollars for treatment they say they didn't receive.

    Calgary woman Kerrie Walter says she's been addicted to everything from cocaine to prescription drugs at different times in her life, but the turning point came last April when she tried to kill herself.

    "I felt at this point in my life there was no other way out," Walter told Go Public.

    Jacqueline Walter, Kerrie's mother, was devastated.

    "I said, 'Enough — we can't do this anymore — you need to get some help.'"
