Canadian Health Recovery Centre is the premier private care addiction treatment facility in Ontario, exclusively for men.

Our team of skilled clinicians and specialists deals 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.

At CHRC, we help you face your fears, build your confidence, learn skills to manage life’s challenges and break the cycle of addiction.

Our clients leave with a new lease on life, renewed health and vitality and the foundation to live their best life.

CHRC was designed for men in the treatment of substance addiction, secondary process addictions including gambling, sex and love addictions, and concurrent mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and addictions related to trauma and PTSD.

We are not a 12-step-based program. At CHRC, we’re changing the status quo with a holistic treatment model based on the latest scientific research, strategically focused on the whole person, not just the addiction.

With the right treatment the chains of addiction can be broken.

You are worth the very best.

For a large percentage of people, the standard treatment models and 12-step programs simply do not work.

The biochemistry that drives addictive behaviour and the physiological damage caused by substance abuse must be treated for lasting recovery to occur. Our unique treatment approach addresses the underlying neurological and biochemical imbalances that counselling alone cannot heal.

What Sets us Apart??

We provide the highest standard of care in a 5-star setting

Your surroundings matter. The process of healing requires time and support from the right people in the right environment. Set on 14-wooded acres, bordering an 18-hole golf course, on the outskirts of Peterborough, Ontario, an hour NE of Toronto, our 22,000 square-foot facility has been specifically designed to create a luxurious retreat far removed from an institutional-style setting so you can focus on healing in relaxed comfort. In free time, clients can enjoy our theatre room, games room, professional gym and our many outdoor activities such as badminton, horseshoes, basketball, hiking, biking, gardening or golf.

We treat the whole person – not just the addiction

Stopping the substance use is not enough. Without effective treatment, the cycle of addiction will continue for many, as the individual will continue to self-medicate in their desperate need for relief from anxiety, depression, cravings, irritability, fatigue and irrational thinking. Our ground-breaking program focuses on the underlying issues that drive addiction and total wellness.

We are the only addiction treatment centre in Canada offering Orthomolecular therapy and biochemical rebalancing

The lifestyle of a person dependent on drugs or alcohol typically results in the depletion of important nutrients, which overtime, interferes with normal brain function. Our Orthomolecular nutritionist uses the highly effective modality of Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis to identify and repair biochemical root causes and effects of addictions. Each client receives a customized nutrition strategy based on body chemistry, nutritional and metabolic needs. We use targeted supplementation and dietary solutions to alleviate compulsions and cravings, improve neurotransmitter function, balance blood sugar levels, improve weight and digestion, promote deep detoxification, optimize energy and vitality and reduce systemic and brain inflammation. We provide a personalized Orthomolecular protocol for each client to address their unique health concerns. The result is a marked improvement in overall health, including areas of mood and mental health, impulse control, processing and memory.

Unparalleled commitment to your recovery

Our treatment team brings compassion, skill, dedication and years of experience. Our highly credentialed team and high staff-to-client ratio allows for the person in treatment to receive the personal care and attention needed to build a solid foundation toward lasting sobriety.

We address the underlying causes of addiction

CHRC utilizes the latest in scientific research and evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) – coupled with an array of proven holistic modalities to get to the root issues and provide you with the tools to reach your recovery goals.

We don’t replace one drug with another

We treat drug and alcohol dependency, including concurrent mood disorders and mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, and emotional trauma without prescribing psychotropic drugs. Our care team will work collaboratively with you to find solutions to wellness that do not focus on adding new chemicals into the system. Assistance in tapering off some medications may be an option for some clients (existing medications as prescribed by a client’s doctor that are effective and helping will be administered as prescribed).

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, codependency, self-esteem, trauma and relationship resolution.

Exceptional aftercare

Aftercare includes counsellor support, check-ins and counsellor-facilitated alumni group meetings, for life. By developing a comprehensive recovery plan that includes understanding triggers for relapse, recovering individuals can significantly reduce their risk of returning to addiction. We provide an individualized aftercare plan specific to each person’s unique needs and circumstances.

Family support

We recognize the ripple effects of addiction on family and loved-ones. The entire family needs support in healing and rebuilding new healthy relationships. Our family program helps to facilitate the healing process, dispel some of the misconceptions around addiction and provide the tools to move forward.
