Addiction has no cure but does have a solution. We provide you that solution through 14- 16 weeks of treatment and the tools for you to build a solid foundation of recovery.
Fresh Start treatment program follows the disease concept: We see addiction as an illness that is progressive and often fatal if untreated. The good news is that with treatment and a program of recovery, you can live a healthy, happy and productive life. Located in Calgary, Alberta our facility is a 40,000 square foot purpose built home where we employ an interdisciplinary approach to treating addiction. Our program includes daily individual and group counselling sessions throughout the course of the program. This is reinforced with enhanced recreational and therapeutic activities conducted in an atmosphere conducive to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth. We see so many lives restored and families who have been brought together through this process. Our nationally recognized treatment program offers an individual approach to recovery. There is no one size fits all treatment. Our 14-16 week program includes individual counselling, group facilitated treatment/healing, Mike Miles Muay Thai physical training, balanced nutritional meals served by a red sel chef, Pure North S'energy assessment and support, and an opportunity to build strong recovery capital.
The peer support component of our program runs parallel to our core treatment model of integrated chronic care. We employ the 12 Step abstinence model of recovery as our base for treatment and this is supported within a bio-psycho-social model of therapy. Our goal is to send fathers back to their kids, sons back to their families and to restore them back into community as productive and content men. With our intensive treatment program, and solid community support, we see that this is reality for many of the men and their families. Our staff is integral to the success of Fresh Start. With over 300 years combined recovery experience, our dedicated team draws on both personal and professional experience for each and every person we serve. Our insight, compassion and understanding of addiction and recovery allow us to not only offer our residents a home, but also make them part of a recovery family. With a 72% group completion rate and a 53% success rate of continuous abstinence based recovery at one year. We invite you to call and see how we can help.
