Why Support U-Turn?

Addiction is a devastating illness that tears families and communities apart. We regularly see individuals who are in crisis and family members affected by it who don’t know where to turn for help. We are a small non-profit addiction recovery centre in the midst of an addictions epidemic, but we have hope for the future and we are making a difference.

Your donation will help save lives, restore families, and create safer, healthier communities. It will help us provide much needed services and support to individuals and their families in recovery. With your help, no matter how small your contribution, we can do more.


“The words thank-you will never be enough for everything they did for my family. I think if it wasn’t for Jeff [my son] might not have made it to treatment. The aftercare they have given me since my son has been [in treatment] has been amazing. The centre truly saved my life and I am not the only parent that feels that way. Without the centre I don’t know what would have become of me with my son’s addiction.”

— Mother of recovering addict
