The Marguerite Centre

a place of healing for women recovering from addiction

Located near Halifax, The Marguerite Centre is the only facility of its kind for women in Nova Scotia.

In a world, where the vast majority of treatment models are tailor-made for men, and centres that help women living with addiction are severely underfunded — the Marguerite Centre needs your help now, more than ever. It’s time we stop sweeping women under the rug. Help support the Marguerite Centre.

Where life begins again...

a recovery journey that captures each woman’s strength and dedication

“Before I went to the Centre I could not imagine that I would ever be well enough to get my little girl back. I didn’t care about myself and my life was focused on my addiction. I was doubtful when I started my stay at the Centre but then I saw that the staff really cared and that I was not the only one struggling. I stayed for the full program and my entire life changed. I now have an apartment, a job and my little girl back. The Marguerite Centre literally saved my life.”
