Holiday Season Fundraising Campaign

 Alcove Addiction Recovery Centre for Women is a non-denominational charity that has been a safe haven for hundreds of women fleeing domestic violence, who also suffer from addictions and mental health issues. Since 1972, we have offered residential treatment to those seeking to better themselves and the lives of their children.

The women who come to Alcove have suffered abuse, trauma, and mental health stress. Treating women with substance abuse requires trauma-informed, gender-specific treatment that allows women to find the root of their trauma to beat addiction.

Unique to Alcove is that the women are able to continue the healing process with their children intact, making the journey to sobriety 50% more effective.  In addition to providing individual and group therapy, Alcove's skilled team provides parenting classes, cooking classes, and more to help women get back to living a present, sober life.
