Together We Can Addiction Recovery & Education Society was founded in 1993 and since then has become one of Canada’s leading treatment centres for men. Located in Metro Vancouver, TWC’s mission is to educate and support men and families who struggle with the challenges of substance misuse, and desire a new life in recovery.
TWC provides over 300 men with abstinence-based recovery programs and supportive housing opportunities in a therapeutic residential setting. Our addiction recovery programs, transitional housing, and aftercare initiatives provide residents with an integrated approach to rehabilitation.
TWC is a licensed healthcare service provider through Vancouver Coastal Health, and is well established as a reputable destination where men can truly begin to create change in their lives and rebuild their family relationships.
After the initial intake process and treatment assessments are completed, residents are given a tour and an orientation package which outlines program requirements, rules and a daily schedule of activities. The treatment assessment helps the counselling staff to identify specific issues and challenges that individuals will focus on in their early recovery. Read More
