At CHRC, we are changing the status quo

Our program challenges all the old assumptions about alcoholism and drug addiction. We address addiction as both behavioural and biochemical in nature. We are not a 12-step-based program – our holistic treatment model is based on the latest scientific research, strategically focused on the whole person, not just the addiction. Our team of skilled clinicians and specialists deal expressly with the complexities of restoring the mind, body and spirit with a program that promotes recovery on several pivotal levels: biochemical, neurological, psychological, emotional, physical, nutritional and spiritual.

What sets us apart?

We don’t just treat the addiction

For many, abstinence alone is not enough - and without effective treatment, the cycle of addiction will persist as individuals will continue to self-medicate in their desperate need for relief from anxiety, depression, cravings, irritability, fatigue and irrational thinking. At CHRC, we focus on the underlying issues and root causes that drive addiction including the neurological and biochemical imbalances that counselling alone cannot heal.

Our multi-disciplinary team is an integral part of what makes us unique. CHRC offers an integrated treatment approach that ensures our guests receive the most effective evidence-based interventions combined with holistic and experiential therapies to support their full recovery. By combining the latest in neuroscience and psychotherapeutic approaches with a dedicated group of health care professionals, we provide our guests with the most qualified, competent and comfortable level of care available.

We offer orthomolecular therapy and biochemical rebalancing

Abuse of alcohol or drugs typically results in the depletion of important nutrients, which over time, interferes with normal brain function. Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances are common even in recovery, causing a lifetime of cravings, poor health and reduced life expectancy. We utilize laboratory data to provide a personalized orthomolecular protocol for each client to address his unique health concerns, biochemical imbalances, nutritional deficiencies and neurological conditions that underlie addictive behaviour. The result is a marked improvement in overall health, including areas of mood and mental health, impulse control, processing and memory.

Biochemical repair and restoration help to re-balance body and brain chemistry, providing a key component to lasting recovery that goes hand-in-hand with the psychological, emotional and spiritual healing supported by our intensive counselling program.

Male-Only Treatment Centre


Why Men Only?

Canadian Health Recovery Centre is a male-only treatment centre. Clinical data demonstrates that the separation of men and women during treatment can substantially improve outcomes. Gender-specific treatment supports a relaxed atmosphere without distraction, where men are able to be more emotionally authentic and focus on core issues such as drug and alcohol dependency, shame and guilt, co-dependency, self-esteem, trauma and relationship resolution. Every aspect of our treatment model is designed to improve outcomes, and for this reason, we are not co-ed.



"The Canadian Health Recovery Centre saved my life. When I came to find out information about the program, I was greeted with such optimism, a decision to change was made instantly. 5 weeks seemed like so much time but by day 2 I felt such a strong presence of life. The comfortable atmosphere, top notch food, and amazing staff made it feel like home."
J., CHRC Alumnus


"CHRC changed my perspective on life. The staff has shown me that my drug addiction was not the problem, but simply a symptom. The focus was on the underlying pain which caused me to use drugs and alcohol as a coping strategy. They helped implement assertive communication skills into my life, as well as mindfulness techniques that help me to regulate my emotions."
K., CHRC Alumnus


"The transformation that took place in my brother’s life during his 6-week stay at the CHRC was beyond our imagination. Seeing my brother so happy and positive is priceless. He told me that he tried so many times to abstain from substance abuse but never was he given the tools, education, understanding and clarification that he received at the centre. Now, he is truly empowered and motivated."
K., Sister of CHRC Alumnus


"You not only gave our son the tools to work with to continue moving forward himself – with the family program you gave us the tools to help let go of the past. He has dreams and plans once again. The transformation in “J” physically, mentally and emotionally is amazing and the relationship now within our family is one that we thought we would never get back."
Alumnus family letter, January 2017

What we treat

At Canadian Health Recovery Centre, we treat all forms of alcohol and chemical dependency including process addictions and concurrent mental health issues such as anxiety, depression a and emotional trauma.

  • Alcohol consumption can damage the brain and most body organs, including the heart, liver and pancreas. It also increases the risk of some cancers, weakens the immune system and affects cognitive function. Areas of the brain that are especially vulnerable to alcohol-related damage are the cerebral cortex (largely responsible for our higher brain functions, including problem-solving and decision-making), the hippocampus (important for memory and learning) and the cerebellum (important for movement coordination). Signs of an alcohol addiction include frequently drinking more than intended, feeling symptoms of withdrawal when stopping, developing a tolerance to alcohol and wanting to stop drinking but not being able to.
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit substance. This drug impairs short-term memory and learning, the ability to focus, and coordination. It also increases heart rate, can harm the lungs, and may increase the risk of psychosis in vulnerable people. The Canadian Medical Association note health concerns including addiction, cardiovascular and pulmonary effects and mental illness, especially concerning for use under the age of 25, because the brain is still developing until about that age.
Cocaine use can lead to severe medical consequences related to the heart and the respiratory, nervous and digestive systems. Cocaine users can also experience severe paranoia, in which they lose touch with reality. Cocaine use is an increasingly risky behaviour as more deaths are being attributed to dealers cutting cocaine with potent drugs like fentanyl, causing overdose in the unknowing participant.
Regular heroin and opioid pain killer use changes the functioning of the brain, causing tolerance and dependence. In the U.S. and Canada, more people now die from opioid overdoses than from vehicle accidents.
Prescription medications and some over-the-counter medications are increasingly being used in ways other than intended or without a prescription. This practice can lead to addiction, and in some cases, overdose.
The effects of hallucinogens—perception-altering drugs—are highly variable and unreliable, producing different effects in different people at different times. Because of their unpredictable nature, the use of hallucinogens can be particularly dangerous.
Inhalants are extremely toxic and can damage the heart, kidneys, lungs and brain. Even a healthy person can suffer heart failure and death within minutes of a single sessionof the prolonged huffing (sniffing) of an inhalant.
Compulsive gambling is a process addiction, where a person becomes dependent on the behaviour and there is a lack of control in choosing whether or not to participate in the behaviour. Chemical processes occur during the behaviour, stimulating the release of certain "feel good" neurotransmitters, which are very similar to the chemical changes that take place during substance abuse. Gambling addictions can lead to severe debt, failed relationships, loss of employment and are often associated with mental health problems, including mood disorders and depression.
Sex addiction is a process addiction, where the behaviour becomes an obsession. A person's thoughts and behaviours are dominated by sex in a way where the thought of sex seriously affects other activities and interactions; this includes the ability to focus, work properly, enjoy healthy relationships and to go about daily activities. Process addiction is often coupled with drug addiction; each addiction needs to be tackled in order for a full recovery to take place.
Compulsive eating affects the brain by stimulating the release of certain "feel good" neurotransmitters. The reward centre in the brain is stimulated causing the release of these neurotransmitters into the body and brain, which drive addictive behaviours. Food addiction affects the same neurotransmitters, in the same areas in the brain as substance addictions and many of the symptoms are identical. Psychologically, many compulsive eaters portray self-regulation problems, eating for emotional comfort and over, or under eating, which can put them at risk of serious health issues.
Compulsive shopping is considered a process addiction that can lead to harmful consequences, such as financial problems, debt, bankruptcy, employment and family disruptions. Process additions are often misunderstood; the chemical and biological changes which occur in the brain, are similar to those dealing with substance addictions, affecting impulse control and the reward centre of the brain. The addictive process is complex and in most cases treatment is required.
