What happens at The Overcomers Place?

We break the cycle of addiction. Most importantly you will find a safe PLACE to connect.

The Overcomers Place creates a caring, connected community through unlimited access to freely available group counselling. An attendance contract is worked out individually and collaboratively to enable anyone to reach their goals in recovery.

Penny Wilkinson has created a support team of specialised addiction counsellors who ALL have their own lived experience with addiction. They hold space in structured day program. These experts are well trained to facilitate and enhance the mutual aid created through effective peer support. The safe group membership creates potential for personal growth and change. The intensive group structure provides extensive and necessary opportunities for multiple practice in a caring, connected community. In addition daily Recovery Resources are presented and discussed to enhance learning and recognition about the addictive cycle in each individual’s life.

The experiences an individual has with others can cause psychological disturbances. These disturbances can be ameliorated with new experiences with others in order for the individual to be well again. We believe there is a path to recovery, to live on the other side of addiction, where the fullest life imaginable is lived.

The Overcomers Place is an All Addictions Centre supporting the whole family.
