A word from the Director
A therapist and/or counsellor will generally fluctuate between different treatment models, depending on the clients and the current environment. There are always many factors to consider when working with people who suffer from alcohol and/or drug abuse.
A counsellor must be empathetic and able to understand the person and why the person feels the need to drink or use drugs despite negative consequences.
Knowing your limitations and knowing when and how to advocate for a person is an important aspect that I look for in a counsellor. This is exactly what you will find at Irving House Addiction Treatment Centre.
I am confident that your experience at our treatment centre will be one that enlightens you and gives you the confidence to continue to stay sober. We have taken all the aspects of a good treatment program and have designed only the best components so we can deliver a good quality program. We are committed to helping you get on the road to recovery.
A good treatment program or counsellor will tell you that going through treatment is only the beginning of a lifelong management of alcoholism and/or drug addiction.

Outdoor Relaxation Area
Equipped with a hot tub and many areas to sit and relax on comfortable furniture while you enjoy the outdoors.
Our multi-faceted space is used for meditation, yoga, art therapy and more. It leads out to our relaxation area outdoors.
Weekly Arranged Outings
Can consist of shopping, running small errands, trips to the bank, barber shop, grocery store or just a walk.
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
