Youth Program

Our Youth Recovery program offers assistance to young men between the ages of 18-25. This program is provided at no cost to the participant thanks to the Calgary Foundation and our generous donors. It includes Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, relapse prevention, addiction counseling, case management, process groups, and living in balance training. Our specialized team tailors the program to each individual’s strengths and needs.

Youth are also invited to participate in fun outdoor activities that help establish healthy outlets through the enjoyment of nature and leisure. Through our annual camping trip, participants have the opportunity to form long-lasting, healthy relationships and experience peer support, which provides encouragement as they grow and overcome the hurdles of life and addiction.

“This program showed me that there is more to life than drugs or alcohol. I have never been in a place where I feel more connected and supported than I do here.” — Isaac, Youth Recovery program graduate

I remember that day very well, as I walked through the doors of the Dream Centre. The staff there, they showed me that I'm important, and that I deserve a break. And I deserve to move forward in my recovery.

Transformation through these programs is only possible with the support of people like you! Explore further to learn more about how you can help the Dream Centre grow.
