Recovery Acres registered as a Society in 1973 with three specific goals:
- Develop alternatives in clients’ behaviours and attitudes toward alcohol and drugs.
- Promote community and employment, which allows a graceful transition back to regular life.
- Network with other community resources to help the resident thrive upon graduation.
Recovery Acres is an opportunity for men to change their lives, after suffering the consequences of an undesirable lifestyle. It starts by developing awareness over addiction, relationships, and life skills. This happens by engaging in treatment, work skills, recreation and healthy interpersonal relationships. The goal is to help men discover their purpose.
