It's time to rewrite the story of addiction.  Many assume such a subject can only have an unhappy ending.

             Let's change that!

I truly appreciate the tools I've picked up in recovery.  I don't avoid hard conversations.  I quit running away.  I try not to judge others.  I have realistic expectations.  I'm fair and I'll never ask someone else to do more than I'm doing.  When I make mistakes, I admit it.  I don't play the victim.  The news is filled with grim reports of addicts overdosing.  It may seem like addiction is winning the war.  But, tha'ts not true.  Sadly, deaths get media attention.  But what about life?  Everyday people are seeking help and getting clean and sober.  It's time to even the odds.  Speak up, and reach out.  Many recovering addicts are living extraordinary lives.  The truth is, we do recover.

It's time to stop focusing on addiction and start focusing on the people addiction is affecting.

 "Bad things do happen in the world, like war, natural disasters and disease.  But out of those situations always arise stories of extraordinary things." (D. Kagan)


Let us help you change your story of addiction and make it extraordinary!


Thorpe Recovery Centre (TRC) utilizes a three phase transitional approach to its treatment program.  Within each phase of treatment our intent is to care for the client on four basic levels:  Biological, Psychological, Social and Spiritual.  Programming includes:  Medically Supported Detox, Transitional Assessment and a 42(+) day Residential treatment.

5 Day Intensives

Thorpe Recovery Centre has introduced a series of 5 day intensive programs.  They include a Family Intensive, Sex Addiction Intensive and Grief Intensive.

Led by Certified Addictions Counselors, the 5 day intensives provide information and techniques that will promote recovery for both the family and the addict.

Client Stories

There is nothing like reading the stories of past TRC clients to get a sense of how their experience was at the treatment centre and in some cases how they are doing now.  Take the time to read some of our client stories.  Many are passionate about recovery and their story of addiction and hopeless have changed to extraordinary lives.
