“Fresh Start is recovering lives by Housing, Treating and Supporting people affected by addiction”


“Every Individual – Recovery for Life”

If youre struggling with addiction, you've come to the right place.



We know it may not feel like it right now, but trust us—change can start right here. Since 1992, Fresh Start has been helping individuals and family members recover from addiction, find the courage to change and learn to use the tools they need to live happy productive lives in recovery.


You can find out more about our programs and our centre here on our website. When you’re ready to make the decision that can save your life, or the life of a person you care about, contact us at 403-387-6266. We are staffed 24/7.


Fresh Start Recovery Centre is accredited with commendation through Accreditation Canada, having been peer-reviewed and found to meet the highest level of consistent quality-of-care and protocol in dealing with those we serve.




One day, one week, and one year at a time, Fresh Start Recovery Centre has reached a significant milestone – We celebrate our 30th anniversary with you.


We thank everyone who has supported our organization and contributed to our impact over the last three decades, one person at a time…

Over the last 30 years, Fresh Start has grown and evolved from a small organization in the south part of Calgary to a community serving clients from across Alberta, the NWT and other parts of Canada.  We now provide treatment and post-treatment services at a number of facilities in Calgary and Lethbridge.  


In our first 30 years, Fresh Start has helped tens of thousands of people – including people directly affected by addiction who are now on their journey of recovery and encompassing countless family members, employers, friends and community members who have also been impacted.


We have done this with the support of hundreds of individuals, foundations, companies and government sources. We are eternally grateful for the generous support of our community!  


To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, Fresh Start Recovery Centre is launching a fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $500,000. The best way to celebrate our history is to set our compass on the future, and we are already looking ahead to our 50th anniversary.  Achieving our $500,000 goal will get us started on the next 20 years of providing life-changing service to people affected by addiction.  


We ask all of our supporters to help us celebrate our first 30 years by giving $30…$300…$3,000…$30,000…  

Every gift will help us toward our Vision of “Every individual, recovery for life” and Mission of recovering lives by housing, treating and supporting people affected by addiction.  


We have received a very generous matching pledge of $200,000 from the Matt Rumpel Family Foundation, Lexus of Calgary, Stampede Toyota, Charlesglen Toyota, Cochrane Toyota, and Lexus of Royal Oak. All donations to the campaign up to the first $200,000 will be matched dollar for dollar.
