In January of 1982, the development of a community-based treatment system for those affected by alcohol and drug use began. By February, 1983, services were being offered Monday to Friday out of York Central Hospital.
In September 1984, Addiction Services for York Region and the Ministry of Health outlined the objectives of this service.
Since then, ASYR has continued to provide support, assistance and respect to those struggling with their use of drugs, alcohol and gambling.
