Approximately six million Canadians have experienced a substance abuse problem in their lifetime,
with men being two and-a-half times more likely than women to face the struggle.
Through their 12-step treatment program that offers shelter, comradery, and mental health services,
Simon House Recovery Centre has helped more than 4,500 men over the last 35 years.
With 66 beds available, the organization suggests that everyone stays with them for a full
year on their road to recovery. Graduates will return to Simon House to run classes and
share their own story as proof of what can be accomplished.
This vital priority issue area includes mental and physical health, well-being and safety.
