Focus Counselling Celebrates Recovery Month

August 31, 2021

Focus Counselling Services [FCS] is celebrating Recovery Month in September.

A spokesperson said, “Focus Counselling Services has spent over 25 years working to support individuals seeking recovery. We provide services during, before, and after treatment. Join us to recognize the importance of recovery through this year’s theme Recovery is For Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community.

“The National Recovery Month organization, shares Focus’ belief that, “Recovery belongs to all of us. We are all called to end gatekeeping and welcome everyone to recovery by lowering barriers to recovery support, creating inclusive spaces and programs, and broadening our understanding of what recovery means for people with different experiences.”

“Focus has been working since 1993 to lower the barriers to a successful recovery. Our programs are built from our vision of encouraging clients to take personal responsibility for their well-being and recovery. Our two main programs are our Supportive Residency and Drop-In Center. Our Supportive Residency program allows for individuals who have completed substance misuse treatment to stay in our supervised sober housing for up to two years while building on their skills towards employment and independent living. Our Drop-In Center provides breakfast, lunch, and showers to the community while additionally supporting individuals facing substance misuse with therapeutic services.

“These two programs allow us to fully support individuals during, before, and after treatment to enhance the ability for individuals to succeed in recovery.

“This September join Focus Counselling Services as we celebrate, thank, and continue to support those in recovery.
