Over our 29 years of providing solutions that recover and save lives, Fresh Start has made friends with many talented, creative and connected people who have asked to help fund the work we do to transform lives, reunite families and give hope to those who need help. These friends have banded together to create and make available some amazing art pieces, unbelievable experiences and gifts to treasure forever. This Holiday Season the board, staff, residents, alumni and entire Fresh Start family hopes you find that perfect gift for your loved one – including yourself –and in so doing, you get to make a meaningful difference. Merry Christmas and thank you for your support.

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

Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s (FSRC) treatment program follows the disease concept: We see addiction as an illness that is progressive and often fatal if left untreated. The good news is that with treatment and a program of recovery, people can and DO live healthy, happy and productive lives. That has been our focus for the last 29 years as we provide solutions which support people moving forward in long-term recovery. With treatment locations in both Calgary and Lethbridge we are seen as a treatment leader not only in Southern Alberta but are recognized across Canada for the interdisciplinary approach we take to treating addiction. In all of our work, we remain constant to our core values: equality, empathy, trust, accountability, support, change, respect and individuality.
