It’s almost a year since Last Door expanded with the addiction of its Keystone Facility, every Monday, on average 10 clients participate in a week long retreat at Keystone. Clients and their families participate in recovery together.

The Gardens at Keystone are producing delicious fruits and vegetables creating a sustainable menu for our main facility in New Westminster.

A new tradition has also started, every Thursday is Alumni Speaker Meeting Night. Clients, Family Members and Alumni gather together to celebrate the message of recovery and help the newcomer see how long term recovery is possible.
