Project Report | Mar 14, 2023
Fresh Start Recovery Centre Report - Mar 14, 2023

By Rod Garossino | Director of Fund Development

In November of 2022, Fresh Start Recovery Centre reached a significant milestone. We can not express how important Milestones are in the success of recovery. One day at a time, we have achieved 30 years! 

It is only through the generous support of our donors that makes it possible for our organization to focus on what is most important, serving and engaging and bringing healing to individuals, families, and our community. 

In our 30 years, WE have helped tens of thousands of people – including people directly affected by the disease of addiction and who are now on their journey of recovery, and encompassing countless family members, employers, friends, and community members who have also been affected. 

As we set our compass on the future, together WE will continue to bring change and a Fresh Start to individuals, families, and community. Thank you for your contributions. Countless individuals affected also say THANK YOU!

Since our last report in November of 2022, we have achieved the following:  

  • 131 people actively participated in the intensive 90-day Phase 1 recovery program.   
  • 82 people participated in Phase 2 of our program. Phase 2 is a 100-day transitional phase that builds on the work done in the initial 90-day program. 
  • 63 people participated in Phase 3 which includes living in transitional housing units or returning to community with continued access to Outreach support and involvement with Fresh Start Alumni.
  • 34 people participated in Phase 4, living in Fresh Start’s post-treatment housing.
  • Note that the Phase 2, 3 and 4 numbers include clients living in community, in the main Fresh Start facilities or in our post-treatment housing.
  • 34 people participated in our Family Healing Program that helps people who have someone in their life who is affected by addiction. The program helps people deal with the effects of their loved one’s addiction on themand learn how to live in recovery also.
