The Fraser Recovery Program (FRP), a non-profit charitable organization, was founded in 1996 with the mission of educating youth about the dangers of substance abuse, and responding to the needs of those struggling with addiction.
There is no shame in being an alcoholic or a drug addict. The only shame is refusing to do something about it. There is no person walking the face of the earth who demonstrates more courage, dignity and integrity, on a daily basis, than an addict in recovery.
Alcohol and drug abuse and addiction are progressive and complex mental health problems, which unfortunately afflict more and more youth in our community. Youth substance abuse and addiction can often have significant negative biopsychosocial consequences for the user and those around them, the most severe being irreversible brain damage.
Our objective is to help young people in need, notably young Quebecers, recognize their problem, cease their abuse and become productive members of society. Unlike most other treatment programs, the FRP helps its clients by providing them with the skills and resources to overcome their addiction, without removing them from their everyday environments. In short, the Program encourages youth to abstain from consuming drugs and alcohol, remain at home and attend school.
All our services are offered at no charge to them or their parents.
The youth of today are the adults of tomorrow, and so we must do our utmost to give them the necessary tools to become productive members of society.
The FRP is a charitable non-profit organization, which can issue tax receipts upon request for financial donations and for donated supplies and/or equipment.
The FRP has been recognized for its efficient use of charitable donations.
