Betty Dustan was desperate for help when she says she decided to spend $20,000 to send her son, who was suicidal and addicted to drugs, to Addiction Canada — a chain of private addiction treatment centres with locations in Alberta and Ontario.

She says her son was kicked out of an Ontario facility after just a month, but that instead of calling his family, he was sent out in the cold, ending up in a men's shelter.

After her son left, she says her money was never returned, and that staff ducked her calls when she followed up.
