Substance abuse rehabilitation clinics are outpatient clinics that specialise in substance dependence problems. They provide services for treating harmful addictions. The services are confidential, free of charge and based on free will. The customers may freely choose their substance abuse rehabilitation clinic, regardless of their living area.

The treatment is started with an assessment period of 1 to 5 visits, during which the situation and treatment needs are evaluated and a treatment plan is compiled, in cooperation with the customer.


The service is intended for people with drug or prescription drug dependency.

The service is only for citizens of Helsinki.
