Since 1975, Thorpe Recovery Centre has provided quality programming to individuals and families affected by addiction and mental health challenges. From humble beginnings, Thorpe opened as a two-bed detoxification unit and, in 1988, evolved into a center that could house up to 30-clients with programming.
In 2012, we moved into the space we still call home today. Located just outside of Blackfoot, Alberta, this state-of-the-art 72-bed facility provides holistic addiction treatment for chemical and process dependencies.
Programming was developed to coincide with evidence-based research in the field of addiction treatment, culminating to what is offered today – treating the individual and their family across four platforms: biological, social, psychological, and spiritual. Always growing and ever-changing, client focus remains as it was from day one: the heart of what we do.
To be a leading organization that provides strength, hope and healing to those affected by addictions and related mental health challenges.
Within a recovery community we help build a pathway where individuals and families can achieve wellbeing and happiness.

We have been an accredited residential addiction treatment centre since 2011. Our programs are developed in close consultation with healthcare experts and feature customized programs.

From client safety and ethics to staff training and patterning within the community. We devote time and resources to continuously improve processes to provide our clients and their families with the best possible care and service.
We encourage comradery and connection at Thorpe. Our affectionately called "pit" is a great place to bond or take time for oneself. There's a communal fire pit, comfortable seating, tables set up with board games available, and more; this is a great place for clients to enjoy.
