At Avalon Recovery Society, we provide completely free, life-changing services to women and families recovering from addiction. For those looking for other forms of support group and community services, please see the links below.
We are grateful to have community partnerships with treatment centres, hospitals, universities, first responders and other partners who recognize the importance of recovery and mental health. If you are interested in partnering with Avalon, please contact one of our Centre Managers and they will be happy to discuss opportunities with you.
