Our Organization

Our House is a non-profit residential addiction treatment centre for men and has been striving to combat addiction in Edmonton since 1984. Our House runs a year-long residential program for men with substance or alcohol use disorders who have completed a short-term residential treatment program. During this year, trained addictions counselors guide residents through courses designed to equip them with the tools for long-term recovery. Dedicated to reducing the effects of addiction and mental health, Our House provides services unlike any other in Alberta, with one of the longest residential treatment programs in Canada.
