HOW TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION
The admissions team is ready to help and provide information by phone and email. They will speak with you to help determine the situation, funding options, addiction history and health status of the potential client. Admission requests can be made by individuals, family members, physicians, employers, and addiction counsellors. Thorpe Recovery Centre has a rolling admissions structure that schedules intakes Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:00pm. This means that individuals begin treatment as soon as the funding is established, and a bed is available.
IS THERE A WAITLIST?
Our wait list is constantly fluctuating. For accurate, up-to-date information please contact our admissions staff.
Because of our unique location near the Saskatchewan/Alberta border, Thorpe has a restricted number of government-subsidized beds sponsored by each province. These beds are in very high demand and are distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.
As of April 2020, we have received a significant grant from the Government of Alberta to fund 38 of our 42 Residential treatment beds and 8 of our 12 Medically Supported Detox beds. There are a number of private funded beds that are available that may be funded by individuals, employers, employee assistance programs, or other private sponsorships. For details regarding our bed availability, please contact our admissions team.
