Round Lake Treatment Centre Since 1979

Recovery from addiction can be a long, personal and often painful journey. It takes courage to make the powerful decision to change directions – to step toward a life of recovery and to stay on the path to healthy living and wellness.

But once you have made the courageous decision to change and you are committed to that decision, we will assist and support you in your recovery.  We are committed to providing you with lifelong tools and resources needed to maintain recovery from the disease of addiction.

Since 1979, Round Lake has been the place where clients go when they make a serious commitment to change.   Round Lake is an internationally CARF accredited organization and operates under Trauma Informed Practices whose Program Director’s mantra is; “We are here to serve; It IS all about the Clients”.  Over its history of operations, people of all cultures and nationalities have come from all over Canada and the United States to seek help with their addictions.

Round Lake provides a safe, respectful, and healing place to become empowered and to build a solid foundation in a recovery based lifestyle.  Through a therapeutic process, we empower clients to take responsibility, work with their issues and ground in new coping skills.

The Centre conducts post-treatment follow-up surveys. The abstinence rate over the past two years has been 64%.

Clients frequently stay in touch with the Centre.  It is rewarding to hear about their success and how what they learned in treatment has helped them.  However, at times we also hear of clients that didn’t make it and may have relapsed back into their addictions.  Many remain in contact and express a wish to return.

At our client gatherings and anniversary celebrations, held every five years (next one in 2024), clients and all those who have been involved in any capacity with the Centre are invited back.  It is always refreshing and amazing to welcome all who have contributed significantly to Round Lake’s history, development and ongoing desire to promote wellness and a recovery based lifestyle.  We strive to keep the circle strong.

With an approximate six to one client/counsellor ratio and a 6-week program, we help individuals and families replace old patterns of behaviour with new, healthy ways of living and relating to the world around them.

We offer:

  • Six or seven-week residential treatment
  • An innovative and proven holistic program
  • Strong clinical, support and leadership staff
  • Co-ed program
  • Trauma Training and Healing Circle
  • Refresher program
  • Colleagues Program
  • Special attention to outstanding, healthy meals
  • A beautiful setting in the world-famous Okanagan Valley

Round Lake is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, (CARF).

Client Testimonial

May 11, 2014

To the Facilitators, Board Members and all Employees of Round Lake Treatment Centre:

Thank you all for helping me with my journey on the Red Road to freedom. On May 15th I will celebrate 18 months clean. On May 17th I will celebrate one year of not smoking cigarettes. On May 24th I will celebrate my son living with me and out of MCFD care, with the help of some good friends, for a period of 11 months. I have separated from my son’s mother and am a single parent. I cooperate with weekly visitation.

My self esteem has improved, I love myself and can look at myself and appreciate my well balanced life. Respect for me has grown in my community. My physical well being has remained the same. I have improved myself by not abusing tobacco, but eat too much and carry extra weight. I am still self-employed and keep busy with all the aspects of that along with volunteering in my community. I attend N.A./A.A. meetings and have regular counselling services (weekly) but due to a work commitment and my son’s baseball and soccer this will decrease.

My cultural and spiritual ceremonies have been regular but may also decrease due to other commitments. Prayer at the start and end of each day, and when necessary, will not change. I pray my words help you to continue helping people to heal, grow, become free from addictions and lead a balanced life. The work you do at Round Lake is continuous and the benefits to all men, women and children, along with their communities is immeasurable. Thank you, keep up the good work.

From a healthy, happy client.
