Welcome to Aurora Recovery Centre!

Addiction is a cunning, baffling and powerful disease, yet one of the least understood in our society today. Most in active addiction deny they have the disease even though their continued use of drugs and alcohol is tearing apart their lives and the lives of those around them. At Aurora, our highly skilled and experienced multidisciplinary team provides individualized treatment plans and programming for clients to begin to experience the miracle of their own recovery.

The journey begins the moment clients arrive at this world class, lake-shore facility on 14 secluded acres. We provide full 24/7 medical detox services utilizing experienced medical professionals and the most advanced withdrawal protocols and practices. Our residential treatment program combines 12-step philosophies, bio-psycho-social therapies and other physical, emotional and spiritual techniques that pave the road for sustainable, long-term recovery.

For many clients, 30-day residential programs are sufficient, although we provide longer term programs to fit the needs of our clients. Detox prepares clients to participate in treatment which includes group therapy, individual counselling, mind/body/spirit sessions and 12-step meetings both inside and outside of the facility. Specialized individual therapy is available from our PhD and Masters level therapists for clients where it is determined necessary by the counselling staff.

Our counselling staff are credentialed addictions and/or mental health professionals with incredible passion for their clients’ care. Each client receives at least three individual counselling sessions weekly while in treatment from one or both of the two staff assigned to each client. This way, clients are assured of comprehensive individual care with both evidence based practices and 12-step philosophies.

Our beautiful facility also provides an exceptional gym with certified personal trainers, magnificent hiking trails, yoga studio and instructor and a large indoor pool to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Proper nutrition is an important part of early recovery and homemade, healthy and tasty meals are prepared by our chef and her staff. Individual special nutritional requirements can be accommodated.

Addiction is a family disease. We offer a family program for loved ones to help them access tools of recovery for themselves. This is instrumental in achieving a harmonious relationships in sobriety.

The first step toward experiencing the miracle of recovery is to contact Aurora Recovery Centre and speak with one of our experienced addiction specialists who will help a person better understand the disease and specifics of individual addictions. We can assist in arranging certified interventionists should this be necessary to help the addict choose the path or recovery rather that continue in their addiction.

It is important to act with urgency to place the addict in treatment when they exhibit the slightest willingness to attend treatment. We have immediate bed availability for this purpose so that any sliver of opportunity to help the addict is not missed.

Call us now at 1-844-515-STOP(7867) so that Aurora can help you or or a loved one find the miracle of recovery.
