1835 Model of Recovery

Recovery CounsellorAt 1835 House the starting point in recovery is abstinence from addictive substances. We provide practical tools and treatment that help men learn to live free from drugs and alcohol. 

Over the course of treatment 1835 House provides resources, practical tools, mentorship, counselling, and support. Counsellors who are also in recovery are available to clients on-site 24/7.

Both Residential and Day Programs include structured days and participation in a respectful and supportive group setting. Clients learn new tools for coping with addiction through an intensive recovery-oriented curriculum. Working a 12-step program, attending meetings, and establishing a place within a community of recovering peers is the foundation of this healing journey.
