Treatment Centres

Recovery Centre
The Recovery Centre in St. John’s is open to anyone in the province who is 16+ and needs help while withdrawing from alcohol, drugs and/or gambling (you may have previously known this service as “detox”).  

We now have around-the-clock nursing support and can provide medication to help with your withdrawals as needed.  Once you start to feel better, we have a counsellor and meetings to support you as you begin your recovery.

To get started (you don’t need a referral, but you do need to call yourself): 

Call us at 709-752-4980 or 1-877-752-4980.  We will ask you some questions over the phone to make sure we are the best service for you.  If we are the right service, we will offer you a bed usually within 24 hours.

  • Or don’t hesitate to ask a counselor, doctor, your hospital Emergency Department or community agency about the Recovery Centre.
