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.

Many thanks to everyone who took part and especially to the team at Ballyliffin who made sure the day went smoothly.
