Little House

We are a house of support & hope for those touched by substance use disorder

In May 2021, Phoenix Society merged with the Little House Alcohol & Drug Recovery Society, based out of Delta. The merger came about after a joint recognition that the organizations’ values aligned, and together could provide enhanced support to more individuals struggling with substance use and their families.

For over 30 years, Little House Society has been a welcoming space for group recovery meetings. In 2009, the little white house, located on 12th Avenue in Tsawwassen was gutted by fire. As a first step in rebuilding, the group undertook a capital campaign that garnered the support of over 100 local businesses, and many individuals, families, churches, and service groups. Through generous in-kind and financial donations, Little House Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Society reopened June 10, 2012. The 1800 square foot, fully accessible facility, includes a comfortable counselling office, and two meeting rooms that accommodate recovery group meetings, workshops, and educational sessions. Room rentals are open to the community.
