Work For Us

Pine River can be a tough, and occasionally heartbreaking place to work. However, it is also hugely enriching, rewarding and fulfilling. I feel blessed to be able to work here.

Pine River Institute is an innovative co-ed live-in treatment program for teens struggling with addictive behaviours. We are a family-centered program comprised of 4 phases: Wilderness (Outdoor Leadership Experience), Live-In, Transition, and Aftercare.

Our campus is situated on 200 acres of spectacular Niagara Escarpment land near Shelburne, Ontario. The program here includes outdoor education, individual, group, and family therapy, expressive arts, athletics, and life skills, as well as the more traditional academic offerings.

We are a mission-driven team of passionate professionals, each of us coming from different backgrounds and bringing our unique expertise and experience to bear on our work. If you thrive in a fast-paced, team-centric environment, this might be the place for you!
