Alcare Place is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping men recover from addiction to alcohol, drugs and gambling. Alcare Place opened in central Halifax in 1987 and since that time we have become a leader in the community with a client-centered, holistic approach to recovery from substance use and gambling disorders. Alcare Place is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors and is staffed by a diverse and qualified team dedicated to helping our clients through their recovery journey.
Alcare Place can accommodate 11 residents, most of whom stay with us for one year. We offer Life Skills Programs, Relapse Prevention Programs, Goal Setting, Recreation, Relaxation & Meditation classes, Case Reviews, One-on-one Counseling, Narcotics Anonymous & Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Over the years, many men have entered our doors with a desire to rebuild their lives and learn more about awareness and prevention of addiction issues. After participating in the Alcare Place Recovery Program, many of our clients return to their respective communities as productive, contributing family members and citizens. Alcare Place provides a safe, stable and supportive environment where our clients are able to focus their energy towards healing, positive change and personal growth.
In our many years of operating a recovery house, the one lesson that rings true is that our impact extends well beyond helping one person take back their life. We return husbands to their wives and partners, fathers to their children, sons and brothers to their families, skilled workers to their communities; and the benefits of recovery ripple outward over years touching countless lives.
