I have been fortunate enough to know Christine, Barry and their staff for 3 years. The program Christine and Barry offer is extremely well executed. The behaviour change strategies and the experiential approach to the material allows for powerful transformation to take place. Of course like any other program the resident has to be willing to put the work in. That being said I can guarantee no one will work any harder than Christine to facilitate your success as long as you decide you want to change.
The facility operates with a very comfortable, family style approach. Much love and support is shown to the residents while they create new routines and as they learn to regain respect and dignity for themselves and others. I have no hesitation in recommending the House of Courage if you are looking for yourself or your loved one. DM

Due to some issues, anxiety and losses in my young adult son's life he was not in the best shape. After trying several programs and medications from a doctor we searched for something else that would help him. House of Courage offered a program where you live-in for 60 days without the regular distractions. The help, compassion, routines, group sessions and individual counselling if needed were exceptional. Having access to a swimming pool, basketball net and lovely grounds to walk in were an extra perk. Christine and Barry have an amazing, positive way of life that includes looking into yourself to solve your personal problems. They are truly invested in helping others. The home is secluded, warm and loving with a smaller number of clients at at time. Our son came home as the precious gift of a healthy, active, productive, happy person. He had the necessary skills and attitude to maintain his sobriety and have a positive lifestyle. His entire demeanor is calm and focused but still fun and creative. He learned how to function in a way that was worthwhile and successful. No words can totally convey the extreme respect and appreciation I have for Barry, Christine and House of Courage.

I attended House of Courage in the fall of 2019, after many years of struggling with alcohol and drug abuse this was the final straw for me. I knew if I didn't get the help I wouldn't be around for much longer or I would have done something that would have changed my life forever.

I had struggled with alcohol for many years following a traumatic incident where I was stabbed 4 times and almost died from my injuries. I had started drinking more and more alone to try and cope with my pain, but it only made it worse. Getting into more trouble and getting into other substances such as cocaine and GHB.

I had tried many treatments from hypnosis, counseling, weekly meetings, and countless others but nothing seemed to stick. After an episode of binge drinking back in October 2019 I made the decision that I need to get some serious help. With the amazing support of my fiance and my family, I made the choice to attend House of Courage for 60 days.

This has been by far one of the best decisions I had made, I have totally changed my life around. My business, my personal life, and my relationships have all flourished since then and I haven't looked back.

Not only is the program effective but the lessons and tools I have learned stick with me every day, from learning how to cope with stress and to deal with people. To learn about myself, letting go of my past, and making room for a new future. I am now over 14 months sober and I feel amazing, not only physically but mentally and emotionally.

Christine and Barry and all of the support staff are amazing people and they are the real reason for my success. The program and the house are designed for you to work through all of "your shit" so you can move on and become who you are meant to be.

If I can say anything to help anyone looking for help all I will say is do it! Allow the program to help you and be open, it will be the best decision you will ever make!

Thank you Christine and Barry for allowing me to regain control of my life! Forever grateful!
