Sunrise Healing Lodge Society Receives Technology to Work Remotely

The Sunrise Healing Lodge Society is an Indigenous based drug and alcohol treatment centre in Calgary that is open to people from all walks of life since 1974. They offer a 10-week inpatient program and a zero-barrier outpatient program that utilizes the 12 step program and First Nations culture to help people in addiction change their lives and live free from drugs and alcohol. They have a purpose-built 36-bed inpatient facility located in Northeast Calgary at 1231 – 34 Ave NE, at the corner of Deerfoot & 32 Ave NE. Their facility was built in 2002 and houses both inpatient and outpatient programs. The building is warm and inviting and is intended to create a home for their clients as they work at recreating their lives in recovery.

“We are so grateful for all of the computers, and the laptops especially right now. It will be so great with so much moving online to video conferencing during these unprecedented times!” said Devin Rued-Fraser, the Training and Marketing Director. We were thrilled to donate 10 computers and 2 laptops to the Sunrise Healing Lodge Society.

Value Statements:

  • Service: Client focused and based on native spirituality as the foundation that supports their program and service delivery.
  • Leadership: Supports teamwork and values the unique contribution of each team member.
  • Respect: Recognizes the diversity, worth, dignity and potential of self and others.
  • Integrity: Conducts themselves in a professional and ethical manner and is accountable for their actions both professionally and as an organization.

The Sunrise Healing Lodge Society recognizes the importance of services working together, hand in hand, to allow clients to move through the continuum of care effectively. It is time to break down silos, to recognize how everyone can pool Recovery Capital and how combined efforts can be re-deployed and utilized most effectively to provide the solution to those suffering in addiction. Sunrise is eagerly looking at the ways they can reach out to other addictions services in the city and build relationships, bringing their full continuum of care together in an unbroken chain that will help those struggling move from the problem of drug addiction to the solution of recovery!
