The AARC provides long-term, cost-effective, family-centric, full-time addiction treatment, designed for the exceptional needs of adolescents. Clients stay in recovery homes with host families. Treatment is based on a unique 12 step (AA) model that promotes peer counselling and lifelong abstinence, accepting that addiction is a chronic disease.
This year marks their 30th anniversary. Visit aarc.ab.ca for more details on their mission and how you can get involved.
