Upcoming Event: Annual Celebration Meeting on June 6th!

Addiction Treatment

Jericho Road provides a men’s 9-month residential addiction recovery program, based on 12-Step models of recovery. This includes connection to ourselves, community and the God of our own understanding. Our residential program gives men that needed time and support to walk through this journey.

We want to see people move from discouragement to hope. Jericho Road provides space for clients to gain purpose and connection with themselves and their community, while offering support in times of relapse and crisis. Daily structure and discipline help men overcome the chaotic routine of addiction and build a new foundation with tools to meet everyday challenges.

The Discipleship House

Residents are provided a safe and encouraging environment to once again face the world, with their heads held high. Finding their needs for home, community, health and purpose being fulfilled, they can in turn pass their experience, strength and hope onto others.

Building a new foundation in life, our residents follow a daily structure which will help them grow out of their old ways of thinking and reacting, into a new life of honesty, open-mindedness and willingness. Jericho Road strongly believes that the opposite of addiction is connection.

We teach abstinence based recovery, while cultivating strength through community.

What to Expect

We are a faith based program with roots in Christianity. Daily devotionals and weekly church attendance are a required part of the program. Persons of any faith background are affirmed, and welcome to apply. Please refer to our Constitution for any questions.

How much does the program cost?

Cost is geared to income. No one is turned away based on financial factors. We are not covered by OHIP.

Can Jericho act as surety?

No. Potential clients must have all outstanding charges resolved before being considered for acceptance. We do accept clients on probation or parole.

Do you have a shorter program?

Our program is a minimum of 9-months. We feel this to be a short time when building a life of recovery.

My family wants help too.

Our Family Support meetings are open to all family and friends of substance users, even those who aren't in our program. Learn more.

How long is the waitlist?

The waitlist is addressed on a first come first serve basis. An estimated time cannot be given.

What if I don't believe in God?

Jericho Road realizes that everyone is at a different place in their faith journey. Our purpose is not to tell you what to believe, but rather foster an environment where you can grow and ask questions.

Do I have to go to detox?

Yes. Jericho Road does not provide detox services, and a minimum 72 hour stay at a detox facility is required before admittance.

Do you have aftercare?

Yes. Jericho Road provides Continuing Care residences to graduates of our program. To learn more, please follow this link.

What if I relapse?

Our relapse policy is based on an individual basis. Depending on the circumstances, grace has been extended after a mandatory 72 hour stay at detox.

Apply for Treatment

The isolation of active addiction can often become that comfortable norm, and the pain of moving on can often seem unbearable. Just know this - you are not alone. We have been there before, and while this first step is yours and yours alone to take, we can help you with the rest.

Have questions? Please read our FAQ above, or contact us.

Things to note:

Potential clients must not have any outstanding criminal charges in order to be accepted. All charges must be resolved before acceptance, and we do not accept clients who are on bail.

Personal recovery goals must be compatible with a 12 step approach and abstinence based philosophy.

Applicants on drug replacement therapy such as methadone will be referred to another program, or asked to wean off before applying.

Accepted applicants' mental and physical health must be stable enough to fully participate in an intensive and structured environment.
