ABOUT
THORPE
RECOVERY
CENTRE

The disease of addiction is a health issue that impacts all Canadians. The Thorpe Recovery Centre is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing safe and effective addiction treatment services for both clients and their families. We give help to those struggling with the disease as they build a solid foundation for life in recovery.

Addiction is commonly believed to be a moral failing; however, we know it is a perceived solution to a problem. People in pain, perhaps because of traumatic experiences in the past, use a substance or behaviour to make the pain go away because they don’t know what else to do. This coping mechanism works for a time, but eventually turns out to be an ineffective solution because the real problems never go away.

From our initial six clients in 1975, hailing from the Lloydminster area to the 600+ individuals helped annually from across Western Canada, the Thorpe Recovery Centre continues to tailor each person’s treatment experience to meet their individual needs. This is where the greatest success is found.

Everyone’s history is uniquely their own- and we believe their recovery journey should be too. Each person who has walked through our doors has shaped our history and our future; for over 45 years the development of our services have been based on the needs of the community. Regardless of our size, scope or geographic outreach, the purpose of what we do remains the same – to improve lives.
