New to Recovery?

Rest assured. Thousands of men with drug or alcohol addictions have blazed the trail before you. Their success lines our walls in the form of more than 1,500 one-year sobriety plaques and more than 80 plaques that recognize 25 years and more of sobriety. 1835 House provides a healthy environment that is free from drugs and alcohol with 24/7 support from counsellors who have been where you are now. When you come to 1835 House, you are entering a community of support.

1835 Model of Recovery

Recovery Counsellor

At 1835 House the starting point in recovery is abstinence from addictive substances. Over the course of your treatment we will provide resources, mentorship, counselling, and support as you undertake a process of personal growth that will involve learning to live a healthier life.

Counsellors who are also in recovery are available to you every step of the way. Whether you participate in the Residential or Day Program, your days will be structured as you participate in a respectful and supportive group setting. You will 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 will be the foundation of your healing journey.
