Quibble Creek

Providing pathways from substance misuse

Opened to the public in August 2012, the STAR program helps close the gap in services for the related challenges of mental-health issues, problematic substance use and homelessness.

Integrated Health and Transition Housing Centre

STAR — which stands for Short Transitional Access to Recovery — provides a safe, structured short stay for up to 3 to 6 weeks for men 19 years of age and older who are homeless or at risk of homelessness due to substance misuse. Our focus is to improve participants’ access to and integration into services through assessment, care planning, motivational counseling, client matching and service brokering.

An additional 52 furnished studio apartments provide safe, structured affordable post-treatment transitional housing for men and women 19 years and older who have initiated lifestyle change and require ongoing social supports. These might include access to employment and educational services. This housing program offers a longer-term stay. It also provides employment and educational assistance, and leisure and recreation. These integrated services empower residents to achieve long-term stability in housing, income, employment and quality of life.

“My time there allowed me to overcome my fears and anxiety and to regain my mental well-being,” he said. “I can’t say enough how great this program is and how important it is to have this type of housing available.
