Cowichan Wellness Recovery Centre

Cowichan Wellness Recovery Centre

The Cowichan Valley Wellness and Recovery Centre (the Centre) at 5878 York Road in North Cowichan will offer a holistic approach to mental health and substance use through prevention, treatment and recovery services. The Centre will be co-operated by Island Health in partnership with Lookout Housing and Health Society.

Starting mid-May Island Health and Lookout will be hosting a series of community dialogues and information sessions, virtually, with key stakeholders. The aims of these conversations are to:  

  • Hold discussions about and build awareness of the role the Wellness and Recovery Centre will play in saving lives and supporting people’s health and well-being.
  • Hold discussions about the collective response to the public health/toxic drug supply (opioid) crisis that includes healthcare providers, service providers, all levels of governments, Indigenous Organizations and People and community leaders and individual people.

The community dialogues will provide stakeholders and the community with information about the project and an opportunity to provide feedback on the project. 

In addition to the community dialogues, the community can also review the Centre Fact Sheet and submit comments to Island Health via CVWRC@viha.ca.

COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS

Island Health recognizes the community’s interest in continued dialogue about the Cowichan Valley Wellness and Recovery Centre and the services the Centre will provide to vulnerable people living with mental health and substance use challenges in our community.
