About-Us

About Us

Formerly Recovery Ottawa, Recovery Care was founded in 2018 with the intent to provide patients and the community with a holistic approach to substance use disorder.

At Recovery Care, we are a harm reduction clinic focused on substance use disorders for legal or illegal drugs, including opioids, narcotics and alcohol.

We are a group of health care professionals dedicated to making a difference in mental health and addictions. We aim to do this through reducing the stigma associated with mental health and addictions by focusing on the needs of our patients.

We do this by treating our patients as a whole; by respecting our patients and guiding them on their journey.

Currently, our locations include multiple centres in Ottawa, Vanier, Bell’s Corners and a location in Cornwall.

Our Vision & Mission

Vision: Our vision is to transform the approach to substance use disorders with the patient at the center of our care. Through continued community engagement, we will work to create centres that evolve with the needs of our patients in order to support their journeys to recovery.
Mission: Our mission is to offer effective and meaningful treatment for the disease of substance use disorders. We believe every path to addiction is different; every path to recovery is unique. We believe substance use disorders affect your overall health, your mental health and community health. Our services help to address all; we have medical doctors onsite, every day, to work with you to set goals and work towards your recovery path. We believe mental health support is an essential part of your care. Our engaged and compassionate team will provide you treatment founded on privacy, dignity and respect. We are committed to exploring new ways to provide additional services to improve your overall health. We believe everyone matters; we believe everyone deserves a chance at recovery.
What to Expect

Why Choose Recovery Care? This is your path. We are here to support you.
