Men’s Drug Treatment

InnerVisions is an abstinence based program and participation in our program requires that people stay clean and sober. Since 1991, InnerVisions has offered a safe and caring drug and alcohol treatment program that encompasses the Twelve Step philosophy. Our treatment program provides a solid foundation in recovery for those best served by a temporary absence from their present stressful environment and for those who require total immersion in a treatment setting. We have zero tolerance for drug or alcohol use after someone has been admitted into our program. We have one centre located in Port Coquitlam, and another located in Maple Ridge, in British Columbia. Both centres service the Greater Vancouver area, as well as British Columbia and parts of Alberta.

Program Overview

Approach

InnerVisions Recovery Society uses a 60-day treatment model for the best application of our Twelve Step program. In some cases, clients may ask for an extension of time depending on their aftercare plan. We have access to private, second stage houses that are designed to provide structure and safety after the 60-day program with InnerVisions. As long as clients are making progress and adhering to the rules, they are permitted to reside there for up to two years

Men’s Recovery Houses

Prairie House

Prairie House opened in Port Coquitlam as InnerVisions’ second treatment centre. Following the structure of the original Miller House, Prairie quickly became a well-oiled recovery machine. It has been the flagship of all men’s drug and alcohol treatment at InnerVisions for over a decade. Past and present clients at Prairie House describe it as a clean and comfortable place where virtues of trust and respect are never overlooked by staff members or clients. Prairie House is composed of two buildings and contains an industrial kitchen, a large group therapy room, a large dining room, open common areas, a TV room,  staff offices, and free weights for working out, among other amenities.

Miller House

Miller House opened its doors in 1991 when Billy and Kim managed to scrape together enough money for half a month’s rent. It is the house where the founders of InnerVisions first saw their shared dream to create a safe place for addicts materialize.

In the summer of 2015, a state of the art facility was built in Maple Ridge and the program that originated in Coquitlam was moved.

Miller House features an industrial kitchen, a large group therapy room, open common areas, staff offices, and a large dining room, among other amenities.
