Don’t let Alcohol Use Disorders control your life any longer – take the first step towards recovery by joining our community today.

How can Searidge help residents of  St. Johns?

The people of St John’s, who are known for their friendliness and strength, have faced challenges along with other Canadians in recent years. These difficulties were unexpected and challenging. Just like many people across the country, some individuals have resorted to drinking alcohol as a way to alleviate their problems, fears, and stresses. Although it may seem like the burden has been lifted temporarily after a few drinks, in reality, the underlying issues remain unresolved once the bottle is empty and a new day begins.ce the bottle is empty and a new day begins.

That’s where we come in, we can help a person struggling with alcohol to understand what triggers for drinking are and provide methods for coping with how to deal with outside pressures.
While we can not fix all that is wrong in the world, we can help our residents by teaching them to know themselves, and their triggers, and rediscover their strengths.  And at the end of the day, endow them with the tools for success in overcoming that desire to turn to a bottle. 

Our Annapolis Royal location is a home away from home for people seeking help.
Our location is far away from triggers that may drive them to drink, but their family and friends can still visit them. The place is easy to get to and very pretty. We want people from St. John’s to know about it so they can go there if they need to. We use simple words to tell people about it and make sure we say the most important things first.

St John's Newfoundland & Labrador

St John’s, the capital city of  Newfoundland and Labrador, is home to a rich and diverse population who are known for being welcoming,  friendly, and hard-working St John’s is also one of Canada’s oldest cities

Urban and yet somehow still rustic, St John’s walks the fine line between yesterday and today with style. A wander through her narrow streets past an array of colourful period houses will invoke a memory of times past, while the windows of our unique shops showcase hand-crafted, unique and elegant wares and fashions. 

Or perhaps a visit to Quidi Vidi, a charming village-within-a-city, that takes you back to fishing villages of an age long past is more your style. 

Wonder at the tenacity of the tiny colourful houses that cling to the cliffs of Signal Hill, also home to the iconic Cabot Tower, a castle-like structure built to commemorate the 400th anniversary of John Cabot’s voyage to Newfoundland.  

Locals know that the best lobster suppers are to be had here, and will happily direct visitors to their favourite places to tuck into the kind of seafood supper that memories are made of. 
Whether you’re seeking a homely rest, a historic wander or are eager to learn more about the land’s first peoples the Mi’kmaq, St John’s has you covered.

Searidge Sponsored SMART Recovery® Meetings

SMART Recovery® is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying.

SMART Recovery® is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an “alcoholic”, an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that’s fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. When you succeed at following our approach, you may graduate from the program, or you may stay around to help others.


Searidge Alcohol Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to our alumni to help ensure their sobriety is sustained. SMART Recovery® group meetings have proven to be incredibly beneficial to our Searidge alumni. SMART Recovery® meetings give our graduate residents the tools and support they require to remain sober.


All SMART Recovery® meetings are held on Zoom please go to our SMART Recovery® Nova Scotia website at to learn more or sign up to attend a meeting.
