Alumni of the Month
I started smoking weed at the age of 13 and I was selling drugs before I could drive. I went to school to be an automotive collision repairman and then switched into operating heavy equipment. I never used hard drugs until I was in my early 20s and I slowly got worse and worse in my addiction.
Annual General Meeting
Last Door Recovery Society Annual General Meeting took place on Friday, November 6 as a hybrid meeting. Members voted on several agenda items while getting be reminding of our primary purpose, to help individuals and their families recover from addiction. Founder David Pavlus inspired all that attended with his words as he retires, and welcomed Jared Nilsson as the New Executive Director.
Pattison Signs made a considerable contribution to allow 50 Billboards to be placed around Metro Vancouver to remind people recovery from addiction is possible, and we must do more than just stopping overdoses.

The above graph displays an aggregate report on how My Recovery Plan is increasing recovery capital and decreasing the unmet needs of people with Substance Use Disorder.
Be part of this innovative and revolutionary way to work with people with addiction.
From the inception of the conference, our goal has been to create a Recovery Capital Toolkit, so Canadians can assess their recovery capital, and bring recovery management at the forefront of an overdose response plan
This tool kit became a website, with a subscription-based service as well as a free online form to measure Recovery Capital
Initiatives to reduce addiction harms are oriented towards harm reduction in Canada. We’re improving that with interventions oriented towards improving strengths – analogous to a Recovery Capital approach.

Rediscover the Last Door with our new Executive Director
Jared Nilsson shares what’s new at Last Door. When is the right time to consider residential addiction treatment? Is alcohol or other drugs negatively affecting your family relationships, work, school, finances and social activities? If they might be, call us today for a free consultation. Some people are sent to treatment by their employers, family demands, and some by their own request for help.
One common myth is that a person needs to “hit rock bottom” before accepting treatment. Our addiction specialists can work with you to develop a plan that could include residential treatment, a short Intro to Recovery, or meeting with a Recovery Coach who can help guide you to a better quality of life.
Last Door’s treatment center provides services for alcohol rehab, drug addiction treatment, and gaming addiction. Our Family Programs help the whole family recover from the harms of addiction. Returning to school, returning to work, or needing to start all over, Last Door’s rehab programs can help you achieve your goals. It’s always the right time to start the journey.
