The Addiction Recovery Program (ARP) provides transitional (not permanent) housing to Vancouver residents who are participating in this abstinence-based supportive program.
For 24 months, ARP coordinators help you set goals, build skills and feel supported while you stay in safe, affordable housing.
The Addiction Recovery Program is a partnership between BC Housing, Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health.
