Outreach and Resource Support

The Turning Point Outreach and Resource Support (OARS) Program connects Richmond residents with services for addiction and mental health needs.

OARS staff have access to a comprehensive network of services in Richmond to help with medical and clinical needs, as well as support a holistic approach to wellness and building a stable life, including access to recreation and social programs, life skills and employment services, and help accessing housing.

The program provides support for:

  • Clients waiting for admission to residential, inpatient, or outpatient addiction and/or mental health treatment programs

  • Clients looking to establish or maintain independent living in the community

All referral sources are welcome. Clients do not need to be interested in Turning Point's residential program to access the OARS program.

Current Events

Tickets are on sale now for Turning Point's 11th Annual Making Recovery a Reality Gala! Tickets can be purchased by completing our order form or by calling the Administrative Office at (604) 303-6844.

Turning Point Recovery Society is honoured to once again be given the opportunity to open a much-needed addictions support recovery house on the North Shore - this time for nine men.

This development is in partnership with BC Housing, who will provide construction financing and own the house, and the District of North Vancouver who will lease the land to BC Housing. Turning Point will provide the programs and services and be responsible for furnishing the 10-bed house.

We have launched a Capital Campaign to raise $50,000 to furnish the house and to purchase essential program supplies and equipment. Donations can be made by calling the Administrative Office at (604) 303-6844 or online by clicking the button below:
