Phoenix Society is located in Surrey, BC. We help people all across BC, with a majority from lower mainland area. We are centrally located and easily accessible by transit. Phoenix Society is dedicated to social innovation and community initiatives that help participants exit the cycle of addiction and homelessness.
The Phoenix Society is a not-for-profit society that became a registered charity in March 1992. As a registered charity, we focus on developing partners, building community capacity and offering meaningful and sustainable solutions for individuals.
The focus of treatment is ultimately on healing and restoration through the development and fostering of healthy relationships, while supporting individuals to identify and build on their own unique strengths, resilience, and personal values.
The mission of Phoenix Drug & Alcohol Recovery & Education Society is to encourage and assist British Columbians in achieving personal, family and community health, free from substance misuse.
74% of our participants complete their programs.
Participants achieved this success even while facing challenges like homelessness and criminal charges.
Phoenix promotes health and wellness in the community by creating inclusive learning spaces where participants uncover their strengths and realistically appraise their challenges. Then, they move to action planning with the support they need to advance toward fulfilling their life goals.
