Host Families provide a safe and supportive environment for youth in their healing and recovery journey from substance use. A safe, accepting, and supportive home environment is essential for youth to begin their journey towards a brighter future.

Threshold Housing Society, Supported Recovery Program, is a program for youth aged 15 to 21 to access support around addiction and recovery. This program has 7 live-in beds, one respite bed and a Host Family recovery bed that will support one participant.

The Supported Recovery Program (SRP) is a safe and supportive environment that youth can access to work toward their goals around substance use and recovery, mental health, life skills, accessing community supports, housing and other areas. All staff within the Supported Recovery Program are there to support youth in their individualized goals and plans for the future.

Youth can stay in Supported Recovery Program for up to 120 days and during that time staff will help youth develop a safe plan for when it is time for them to exit the program. It is the goals of the program to walk with youth to ensure they have safe housing and support.
