Rice Lake Residence is located on the shores of Rice Lake, in Gores Landing, Ontario, approximately two hours from Toronto. This private residential treatment program caters to adults ages 18 years and over who are seeking help with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. It also treats process addictions like gambling, sex, Internet and video games. Rice Lake is part of a network that includes another residential facility called Trafalgar Residence and aftercare from an outpatient facility in Toronto.

Accommodations and Food

The beautifully restored Victorian home is set on two manicured lakefront acres and offers a serene view and country atmosphere that makes it a perfect environment for recovery. The facility offers space for 20 clients in 10 spacious gender-specific bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathroom. The grounds offer an on-site gym, basketball court and swimming pool.

The house has its own chef who prepares three healthy, delicious gourmet meals a day. Dietary preferences and restrictions can be accommodated upon request.

Treatment and Staff

Rice Lake Residence offers a 30-day treatment track that does not include detox but referrals can be provided. Treatment is also offered for concurrent mental health disorders that may be connected to addiction, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Twenty-four hour medication management services are provided along with specialized groups for dual diagnosis support.

Residents receive three CBT-based group sessions a day and at least three hour-long individual sessions a week. Therapy is typically gender-specific and covers topics like developing coping and communication skills, healthy methods for stress management and relapse prevention. Residents also attend on-site 12-step meetings and psychoeducation classes. The facility has limited Internet access and house phones are available for outgoing calls to family only.

Rice Lake Residence is headed by Dr. Christine Courbasson, a psychologist who serves as clinical director. There are also Master’s-level therapists, CADCs, support staff and a chef.


Adjunct therapies offered on-site include yoga, fitness training, nutrition counseling, massage therapy and art therapy. Aftercare alumni support groups are available on-site and outpatient care is offered at the affiliated facility in Toronto.

Rice Lake Residence provides an ongoing and weekly support group for family members and loved ones. The purpose is to educate family members on addiction and recovery and how to best support the addict while also addressing their own issues.

In Summary

Rice Lake Residence provides a safe place for clients to work on their issues surrounded by nature. As part of the Trafalgar treatment network, Rice Lake offers highly-trained staff, evidence-based care and the support of an outpatient program after the residential track is completed. This a great choice for men and women looking for treatment in the Toronto area.
