Residents are provided with a comfortable private room, healthy meals, medication management, psycho-social support, clinical counseling and professional recovery programming all in a drug and alcohol-free environment.
Ozanam Recovery House offers sleeping and living accommodation for up to nineteen men in individual rooms with bathroom facilities shared between two or three individuals. Meals are nutritious and varied and cooked to exacting standards. Residents have the opportunity to enhance their cooking skills and have responsibilities for some preparation and clean-up.
In exchange, residents pay a nominal subsidized rent and participate in household chores and activities. Individuals are responsible for the care of their room and their laundry. The building is smoke-free and alcohol and drugs are not permitted.
Hours of curfew ensure that adequate rest becomes part of a daily routine. Medical and dental help are provided where needed and a variety of counseling services are offered.
Professional staff help residents focus on their physical, mental and social well-being. The men gain the skills and confidence they need to function more effectively once they leave Ozanam Recovery House.
Since opening our doors in 2007, we have helped hundreds of men return to effective functioning within the community.
Thanks to the generous support of individual donors and local service groups, we have been able to maintain 24-hour professional staffing and addictions programming, as well as a bursary fund to help clients re-train for employment.
Taken together, these practices ensure that good health is the norm at Ozanam Recovery House.
