About the Northern BC Therapeutic Community
The Northern BC Therapeutic Community provides a safe and private community for adults who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness and are interested in community-based recovery from problematic substance use. The 166 acre Woodland property has 45 housing units across four dormitory-style buildings. Residents share bedrooms and washroom facilities, as well as common areas such as the TV lounge and community dining hall.
The program takes a participative, group-based approach. Residents are supported to achieve life skills and higher education. This includes individual and group supports such as social/recreational and educational programs, as well as connections to community services such as education, employment, and health.
Residents may stay at the program for up to one-year, and most resident’s stays are funded through provincial programs. The program’s structure and admission criteria are currently under review, and this page will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
