Addiction Recovery Program

Through a partnership with Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health, BC Housing provides transitional housing units to people in recovery from problematic substance use. Before long-term housing can be a sustainable option for some individuals, support services need to be in place to help manage their addictions.

The 18-month Addiction Recovery Program ensures that affordable housing and support services are available to individuals in recovery once they have completed detox and support recovery programs. 93 units of transitional housing are provided on a priority basis.

Individuals referred to the program must:

  • have demonstrated a commitment to recovery, and abstinence for a period of at least 3 months at time of referral/application and maintain abstinence prior to placement into program;
  • have a personal recovery plan;
  • have skills and abilities to live independently with minimal supports.
  • reside in Vancouver or the Fraser Health Region - from Burnaby to Boston Bar catchment area (please confirm exact communities with Fraser Health.)
