recover from addiction.

 

If you’re struggling with addiction, you’re in 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 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.

There’s no better time to start a new life than right now.

Each year, in my dad’s name, I send a donation to Fresh Start to help another man get the help he needs, so his children can have a better life.  Fresh Start is nationally recognized for their addiction treatment program and I am grateful that I hear about the many fathers, grandfathers, brothers and sons who do get better ... and the families who get better and stronger as a result.

Your gift to Fresh Start Recovery Centre of up to $50 US through the Global Giving Little by Little challenge will earn an extra 50% in matching funds starting right NOW and lasting until 10PM MDT on Friday, August 16th, while matching funds last!

As many of you know, we have started our social enterprise venture by joining the ranks of the awesome food trucks here in Calgary.   We are kicking off our first full season and would like to give our supporters the first opportunity at booking us.  Last year we served at many private events as well as workplace lunch and learns. This is a great way to introduce your coworkers and community to the gifts of recovery and the Fresh Start movement.  They will be able to enjoy a recovery themed meal and they will know that when they eat with us, they are DOING GOOD with all profits helping more men and families get well.
