Welcoming Brad....


As the newest member of the Fresh Start Recovery Centre’s Counselling team I have been asked to write a short blog on who I am and what I’m about.

I have been working in the addictions field in Calgary for five years, part time at a medical detox for three years and full time as an Intensive Case Manager, housing homeless individuals suffering from the disease of addiction.

During these five years, I attended Fresh Starts Gratitude Ceremonies to support the men whose celebration was absent of family. I too graduated from a treatment centre and no one showed up as I had burned too many bridges and said one too many sorry’s. I thought I could be a support as a living amends to doing the right thing.

Sitting on the sidelines alone at these ceremonies I was always envious of the Fresh Start staff on the other side of the room and hoped that one day I could work for such an organization. Well today, after doing the next right thing, living within Spiritual Principles and having guidance from something bigger than myself, I now sit on the “other side”.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to be part of an organization that not only saves lives but heals families as well, and I look forward to a rewarding and gratuitous career at Fresh Start Recovery Centre.
