Our Residents do not live in Our Workspace, we work in their Home

Lennon House officially opened in April of 2020 and now houses 22 residents, both male and female, who have begun their journey to successful recovery from addiction. 


Dianne has questioned the lack of available resources for those in crisis on the island and strives to bring better services to those without access to the care those on PEI so desperately need.

Soon after the loss of her son, Dianne set out to be part of the solution, by opening a recovery home on Prince Edward Island for those battling with addictions and their mental health.

Dianne Young's son, Lennon, ended his life by suicide after struggling with addiction and mental health issues, at just 29 years old.

Dianne turned her painful loss into a passion to make care and recovery available to islanders and provide a safe, reliable home for those ready to get their life back.

Overview of Lennon House

Lennon House ensures the continuum of care for those with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders associated with substance use disorder.

Lennon house fits into a model of care which can improve and encourage the long term path to recovery. 

We improve the flow and efficiency of services and support across our island. 

A resident may stay from three to 12 months. 


It is recommended that no one stays less than three months. This will depend on the needs of the resident.

Lennon House is Peer based.

Our model of care is meant to feel and act like a home, as opposed to a medical facility.
