Trilogy Houses

“Drug addiction should be termed drug desperation, our goal is to eliminate desperation and replace it with hope.”

The late Gary Robinson, Co-Founder


“Dear Gary, first of all thank you so much for all the good work you are doing. Drugs are one of the most destructive things in our society today and those who fall prey to them are so much in need of real understanding. It is a great thing that you do. I am so glad to hear that my music finds a place in your world, that is one of the great things about music, that it has the ability to communicate on a deep and personal level without the use of spoken words. I can imagine that some addicts are simply beyond words and at this point only something spiritual like music or some sort of profound belief can help. I am so honoured whenever this happens, it is truly one of the hidden benefits of being an artist.”

Written by Greg Lake – founding member of King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Lead singer Band Asia; sold over 40 million albums. Emerson Lake and Palmer were the biggest band in the world from 1970-1979. I named the Trilogy Houses after one of their first albums – The Trilogy. Gary Robinson, 2009

Greg Lake

“ I have been in and out of recovery for many years. I was at the Trilogy Houses several years ago where I was doing well. I left, against their advice, to be on my own. I came back because I know they care about me; Gord gave me a huge bear hug, Susan, greeted me with a big smile asking, “how the heck are you, welcome back.” The Trilogy Houses feel like a home, they look like a home. There is good food, good fellowship, rules and responsibilities to help me build a new life.”


“I don’t know the whole story, but I want to thank you Susan, for your support of Gary when he created the Society. You two have done an amazing thing here! The reason I came was seeing your guys at the Easy Does It Club AA meeting smiling! I didn’t think I could be happy and clean at the same time! Then I moved in here and found the ways to do it. I know there is a lot of behind the scene work you do to keep this society going, and I really do appreciate if and am truly grateful for you and Gary’s work here. Again, thank you for everything you have done to give me a safe place to get recovery.”
