Our society must cope with many social challenges, such as poverty, a lack of education, violence and addictions. Vilavi’s purpose is based on the conviction that, with appropriate support, each person will be able to find within him/herself the resources necessary to achieve success in her/his personal development and social integration.


The Mission of Vilavi consists of developing initiatives and programs with the objective of promoting personal self-reliance and social progress


Vilavi is a nonprofit organization[1] committed since September 7, 1989 with underprivileged people offering inpatient prevention and treatment addiction programs and social housing with community support.

The objective of the organization is to help people regain their independence.

Vilavi provides services to adult men and women struggling with drug problems, alcohol and homeless or people at risk of homelessness or living in residential instability.

Vilavi’s treatment center is certified by the Centre Intégré de la Santé et des services sociaux de Lanaudière.
