Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s treatment program recognizes addiction as a chronic brain disorder. Treatment can help facilitate a life of recovery, empowering individuals to live healthy and productive lives, free from the effects of addiction.

We employ an interdisciplinary approach to treating addiction specifically based on an individual’s needs. Fresh Start Recovery aligns with the philosophy that recovery is a process of restoring an individual’s sense of belonging through the re-connection to self, others, and community. While utilizing a comprehensive goal-setting strategy, building resiliency through the development and exploration of interpersonal relationships, spirituality, education, employment, housing, culture, and a further introspective look at oneself. This approach is enhanced through recreational and therapeutic activities conducted in an atmosphere conducive to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth. Our peer support model runs in unison with our treatment model of integrated chronic care, a base derived from the 12 Step abstinence model of recovery and is underpinned by a biopsychosocial-spiritual model of therapy.

Fresh Start Recovery Centre is a nationally recognized organization and is seen as a leader in the addictions sector. Established in 1992 and now with locations in both Calgary and Lethbridge, we have continued to provide solutions that recover lives by housing, treating, and supporting individuals affected by addiction.

Our staffing model is exceptionally diverse and eclectic in nature. We have approximately 300 years of combined lived experience amongst our employees. Giving us the ability to bring forth an effective empirically based approach to treatment, reinforced with varying degrees of academic recognition. Our staff is integral to the success of Fresh Start and each and every person we serve. Our insight, compassion and understanding of addiction and recovery allows us to not only offer our clients a home, but also make them part of our Recovery Community.
