Addictions Supportive Housing (ASH)
Addictions Supportive Housing is a partnership between ADAPT and Summit Housing (LHIN 4) and Support and Housing Halton (LHIN 6). The program provides support and services to clients in recovery who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or inadequately housed. Each participant receives a full package of clinical/support services, as well as a housing subsidy.
ADAPT’s ASH Program holds 16 subsidies in the Mississauga/Halton LHIN, and 20 in LHIN 4 Burlington. The housing subsidy is active for a period of 12-18 months, based on need. The program provides intensive outreach services, with case managers who support clients in their recovery and in moving to successful independent living. Clients must be stable enough in their recovery and mental health status to be capable of moving to independent living within the programs time frame. Each client receives individual support, as well as participating in 15 life-skills courses, to assist in their growth and independence.
