    Where do I go? Any suggestions?

    Can someone please reccomend a professional that I can speak with and/or group to help me deal with some of the addictions and mental issues I've been having? As I've explained in previous postings, I am a chronic drug user who's at the end of the line. I'm also some pretty serious depression/anxiety issues.

    If you know a therapist or group that is good and relatively close to west-end Ottawa, that would be great. Also, I need a free service since I am financially strained... there's gotta be some government funded organizations, right?
