About ARID Recovery Homes



To comfort, nurture and provide all those who qualify with the tools to create a healthy, stable and truly fulfilling sober life.


ARID Recovery Homes is a community-based organization dedicated to providing men and women recovering from substance abuse with a safe, supportive, home-like environment. ARID believes that with counseling and recovery programs, people who suffer from substance abuse will become sober, responsible contributing members of their families and communities.


ARID believes that sobriety for the alcoholic/addict is the only option for recovery. Through befriending, demonstrating, mentoring, partnering and teaching by example, ARID practices the time-honored truths of fellowship and service in its own community and beyond. The approach taken by ARID is one of maintaining individual dignity while a person's sense of self worth, self esteem and motivation is gradually strengthened in a supportive and safe environment.

Our History

Established in 1976, ARID is a charitable non-profit organization committed to providing short to midterm residency in an alcohol and drug-free environment. ARID was formed because a suitable place to live and recover did not exist for individuals who had decided to lead a life without the use of alcohol or drugs. At the present time, ARID operates three homes; one in Thorold, one in Fort Erie and ARID's WISH (Womens Interim Supportive Home) for women. The residents live with a minimum amount of supervision, but have access to counselors and staff who are familiar with the problems associated with recovery.
