Gratitude Manor will be a forward step for Fresh Start Graduates and their families. Our Recovery Community (post-treatment housing) allows men, women and their families an opportunity to continue to build their lives while keeping in place important connections to further develop their aspirations
Upon completion of our comprehensive 16-week program, men and women are encouraged to stay at the treatment facility until they establish the supports required for the successful transition into a Recovery Community initiative. Once part of a Recovery Community initiative, like Gratitude Manor, individuals will continue to connect with their supports, mentors and counsellors as well as attend weekly recovery meetings and Fresh Start milestone celebrations. Alumni will become part of a broader support system for the men and women receiving treatment at Fresh Start. Individuals in the recovery community have agreed and are expected to volunteer for Fresh Start events as well as community events. Gratitude Manor residents will have transitioned back into work, school or positions of volunteering.
Currently Fresh Start has Alumni and their families residing in two other Recovery Community locations.
These locations are supported by a team of Outreach Counselors that offer full case management and supports through referral and engagement in all major life areas. These fully abstinent environments have a modern layout and are homes to families and individuals. Because people deserve no less. These recovery communities are obtained as a result of long-term abstinence and are the foundation in allowing individuals to in co-exist within a safe supported independent living community.
Fresh Start understands the importance of safe, sober and supported housing for those who have completed addiction treatment. This facet of our program is an important part of our mission in housing, treating and supporting all people affected by the disease of addiction.
