Surrey: 103 problem unregulated Recovery Homes are no longer in operation in the City of Surrey and another 62 unregulated Recovery Homes are currently under investigation.

“The work that is being done to rein in disruptive unregulated Recovery Homes is part of the High Risk Location Initiative under the Mayor’s Task Force on Crime,” says Mayor Dianne Watts. The collaborative effort includes the City’s By-laws Department, RCMP, Crown Counsel, the Assisted Living Registry and Provincial Social Agencies in not only targeting problem unregulated Recovery Homes but also ensuring adequate programs and assistance are provided for the individuals affected by the closures.
