Can I help?

It is a safe haven away from the temptations and stress of the city, where clients learn how to have fun without consuming mind-altering substances. A lot of time is spent outdoors, in nature. Guidelines to good behaviour are enforced and clients learn discipline, good work ethics, and to accept responsibilities.

The Heart of the Matter

The activities at the Camp are structured to help the young person start a normal, healthy new routine in life. These activities, animated by experienced personnel, include individual counselling, group therapy, and group discussions.

Who's Cookin' the Bacon?

A healthy diet is a very important element in recovery. At the Camp, each day always begins with a full breakfast. The day is filled with individual or group activities, and ends with a hearty dinner followed by a group meeting.

Practicing

This temporary change of environment is very important; however, what clients do upon their return to the city is just as important. They are encouraged to practice what they have learned at the Camp – for example, helping to clean up after supper –and to continue attending the twice-weekly meetings.

Success Stories

“The Fraser Recovery Program changed my life. I come from a fairly poor household with lots of substance abuse.  Neither my parents, nor my three siblings graduated from high school. I entered the program when I was 13 years old. At the time I was already consuming alcohol on a regular basis and smoking weed every day, even experimenting with harder drugs, obviously failing almost all my classes. Not only did the Program help me get off drugs, but they also helped me get back on track with my education and mental health. They helped me to get a diagnosis for a learning disability; it had never been acknowledged and so that issue was addressed. They also offered me a study hall after school to help me with my homework. When I was 16, I was sleeping on my sister’s couch for over a year in an extremely toxic household. Thanks to Mr. Fraser and the people in the program, I was able to go into a foster home with amazing people who really showed me I could take another path in life. Now, I have graduated from college with a degree in Youth and Adult Correctional Intervention. I could never have done it without being a part of this amazing program…. I am so thankful….”
