Our History

Established in 1976, ARID is a charitable non-profit organization committed to providing short to midterm residency in an alcohol and drug-free environment. ARID was formed because a suitable place to live and recover did not exist for individuals who had decided to lead a life without the use of alcohol or drugs. At the present time, ARID operates three homes; one in Thorold, one in Fort Erie and ARID's WISH (Womens Interim Supportive Home) for women. The residents live with a minimum amount of supervision, but have access to counselors and staff who are familiar with the problems associated with recovery.
