About the Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction
Who we treat
The Burnaby Centre for Mental Health and Addiction (BCMHA) is a provincial resource providing specialized inpatient treatment services for BC adults (over 19 years) with severe and complex concurrent substance addiction and mental health disorders.
In addition, the BCMHA fills a gap in service, meeting the complex needs of people who are homeless or living in unstable housing, who are vulnerable and who are affected by significant physical and mental health issues.
This voluntary program accepts clients on probation, as well as those using methadone.
Access to the program is by referral only. More information about the referral process.
