The Cochrane District Detox Centre (CDDC), which is sponsored by the Smooth Rock Falls Hospital, was opened in November 1989. The 20-bed facility is housed in the Mattagami Centre (former SRF Hospital) in Smooth Rock Falls. The agency is mandated to offer services to the population of the North East region; a small percentage of persons from other regions of the Province also seek services at the CDDC. This residential centre operates 24/7. The CDDC is designated under Bill 8. The CDDC is a co-ed bilingual facility.
