Referral and Intake

The Bruce Oake Centre is a nonprofit 50-bed residential treatment program in the city of Winnipeg. We offer long term live-in and community-based services to individuals seeking recovery from substance use disorder.

Our holistic approach incorporates peer support into eight months of post-treatment outreach programming assisting participants to connect with a recovery community of their choice and sustain well-being during their first year.

We invest in our alumni, providing space for weekly alumni meetings, recovery milestones, graduation celebrations and other recovery-based activities (in person and virtual).


  • Individuals seeking treatment must be non-mandated, self-motivated, and call our intake line at 1-866-612-6253.
  • Our Intake Coordinator with conduct an assessment, and potential participants are required to initiate contact. This process will take 20 minutes and a private space is required so that we may conduct a thorough assessment.
  • Prior approval of legal issues and medical clearance may be required.
  • Medications are reviewed by the Program Director and medical partners prior to time of admission.


  • Once an admission date is available, our Intake Coordinator will support each individual and provide intake details.
  • Detox supports can be coordinated off-site if required.
