Last Door offers Social Model Programming as a strategy for recovery from addiction, we encourage clients to build Recovery Capital while in treatment.
Last Door Programs cultivate a homelike, rather than institutional atmosphere so people can recover from drug addiction, alcohol addiction, gambling addiction, food addiction, video gaming addiction, internet addiction and nicotine addiction.
Last Door’s multidisciplinary team and comprehensive treatment approach works for various client profiles, from airline pilots, to trades people, to high school students. It is never too early or too late to find recovery.
Last Door staff are explicit role models who guide rather than direct clients. Staff’s own recovery and growth experiences are essential part of the overall experiential learning process at Last Door.
Volunteers are the heart of Last Door. Alumnus of our rehab program, New Westminster has been considered the Recovery Capital of Canada, this thriving and constantly growing recovery community is an indicator of how well our community model programs are working. Clients from other cities, learn what being in recovery in a community is like while in treatment, so they can take what they have learned back to their home community.
