About Fresh Start

Reach out. We are here to help.

Fresh Start treatment 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, people that struggle with addiction can and do live healthy, happy and productive lives. Our goal is to send parents back to their kids, sons and daughters back to their families, and to restore people back into community.

With our intensive treatment program and solid community support, we see that this is reality. We see the lives restored and the families who have been brought together through recovery. Our nationally recognized treatment program offers an individual approach to recovering. There is no one size fits all treatment.

We offer a 14-16 week program with one on one counselling, group facilitated healing, Ron Jarrett with Mission Fitness physical training, balanced nutritional meals and an opportunity to build a strong foundation of recovery.

Ron Jarrett, owner of Mission Fitness is what a committed and helpful community partner is all about. He trains the clients in the house weekly and believes that true strength and progress can only be made from a solid foundation.  That foundation includes alignment, mobility and stability, and must address any muscular imbalances, weaknesses and lack of connection.  Achieving this level means the body is able to progress safely without fear of injury. www.missionfit.ca
