The Avalon Recovery Society is dedicated to helping women in recovery from addiction. Avalon Centres are warm, welcoming drop-in centres, where women in recovery can share their experience, strength and hope in a supportive environment. There is no cost for any of Avalon’s services which includes childminding for the noon support group. The centres offer Twelve Step support groups, a resource library, a computer with internet access, a clothes closet, volunteer opportunities, and the coffee or tea is always on. The North Shore Centre serves women of the North Shore and beyond.
