D'Anza A., Counsellor - Thorpe Recovery Centre



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:


  • Phase I - Detox
  • Phase II - Residential Progragming
  • Extended Aftercare


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 Counsellors, the 5 day intensives provide information and techniques that will promote recovery for both the family and the addict.

New Children's Intensive

This new children's program provides education and support for girls and boys ages 7-12 who have someone in their life who is suffering with addiction.  The 3 day sessions teach kids about the disease of addiction through age approapriate activities so they realize:

  • Addiction is not their fault
  • They are not alone
  • There are healthy ways to cope with the pain and difficulties they face at home.
