Vancouver Island Therapeutic Community

Vancouver Island Therapeutic Community (VITC) is strategically located in central Nanaimo on Vancouver Island and has access to numerous amenities. VITC recognizes that longer-term programming can produce enhanced recovery outcomes, so there is no time limit on the length of stay. When appropriate, residents are encouraged to stay in the program until they are ready for independent living. Residents of the Vancouver Island Therapeutic Community (VITC) are offered holistic and affordable housing.

We have partnered with many agencies to deliver a strong program of instruction, health, and safety. Double-occupancy rooms and home-cooked meals create a sense of belonging. We encourage individuality and support residents to be productive members of society. Special community events and celebrations also help develop a strong therapeutic alliance between residents, families, friends, and staff.more info
