The women's only alcohol recovery centre is nestled into a pastoral setting at the north end of Lloyd Avenue in North Vancouver.

Turning Point Recovery Society is thrilled to announce that construction on our new 9-bed women’s house on the North Shore has completed and that we are now officially open. We extend a huge thank you to our architect Anthony Boni for the incredible design, our contractors, Ledcor who were attentive to every detail, and of course to our development team at CPA. None of this would have been possible without the support of the District of North Vancouver (in particular Councillor Doug MacKay-Dunn), BC Housing, Vancouver Coastal Health, the Government of Canada and our many many donors. Our special thanks to the North Shore Mayor’s Golf Tournament of 2014 – your incredible generosity has made this opportunity for recovery a reality for women on the North Shore with addiction issues – who no longer have to leave their home community to get well. Thank you all!



In Loving Memory of Lori Allison

Lori Allison
September 6, 1961 – October 29, 2014

It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you the passing of Lori Allison on Saturday, October 29, 2014. Lori had been with Turning Point for over ten years, ultimately becoming our Site Manager at the Richmond Women’s house. Lori worked tirelessly and with great passion to support men and women in recovery at Turning Point and throughout the community – this is a profound loss for us all.

Lori was an inspiration, a mentor, a dear friend and she personified all that we are and try to be at Turning Point. Her capacity for caring and her passion to help others was endless as was the list of the kindnesses and contributions she gave to us, the residents she served and countless other individuals and organizations. It is difficult to find the right words to speak to all that Lori embodied and was to us all.

Our board and staff express our deepest condolences to Lori’s true love and life partner Jill, to her sisters, and her many friends and extended family members.
A celebration of Lori’s life will be held on Saturday, November 29th at 2:00 pm at:

Canadian Memorial Center for Peace
1825 W. 16th Avenue
Vancouver, BC
V6J 2M3
