Alpha House

Recovery Community

About Us

Alpha House is an addiction recovery community addressing the needs of self-identified men and non-binary people aged 18 and up. At Alpha House we believe that recovery from addiction and mental illnesses must address every aspect of the individual. As a result, our programs address physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs, all in an effort to support the individual’s recovery from addiction.

Alpha House is a 4-month post-treatment Residential Program with the sole purpose of re-integration through educational and vocational counselling, coupled with 24-hour Addictions and Mental Health Counselling support and relapse prevention tools.

Alpha House has been helping those who suffer from addiction in the city of Toronto since 1972.



Many refer to Alpha House as second stage treatment, as clients are given the freedom to work and typically have an acute sense of life stability prior to admission. The residents of Alpha House support their recovery through an abstinence-based recovery program. This program includes a variety of modalities, which residents are free to choose for themselves. The Alpha House program offers a unique blend of guidance and support in areas of the greatest concern to our clients. These include upgrading of one's education, job searching, life skills, one-on-one counselling, and living within a community and meeting one's obligations to it.
