Our Centre

White Oaks provides a peaceful therapeutic environment where addicts and their families may safely confront the impact addiction is having on their lives and find a spiritual way to develop the skills within themselves to turn their lives around.

The Centre is purpose built and is nestled in the tranquil Donegal Hills about half a mile from Derry City. The site also includes the IOSAS Centre and the Celtic Prayer Garden which contribute to the wholly unique spiritual aspect of the Centre.
