Our Client’s Journey Into Recovery

Our Alumni Are Our Success

Hi, My name is Mireille, and I’m an addict.
My world was torn apart on a Monday in November about a year ago. It was on this day that I realized that my addiction had become so unmanageable, that I could not provide a safe environment for my two young children. I entered my first day of the inpatient treatment program at Sunrise a month after my children were apprehended by child and family services. This was my first time in a treatment program and my first time admitting that my life was unmanageable due to my addiction.
My 42 days of treatment in Sunrise taught me the background of my disease and introduced me to the 12 Steps of the program of Recovery. I also learned how to live a healthy life, cultural teachings, and made friendships. The most important thing that Sunrise taught me was how to find my God. Finding God is an integral part of recovery and is the arch to which I could walk through toward my new life.
January 8, 2018 was my Marble Ceremony from Sunrise. My Mother flew in from BC and my children attended the ceremony as a support. It was a day where I could see my future with my children in it and had a sense of hope for my life.
Sunrise and being a part of a 12 Step fellowship has drastically changed my life. In the Spring I completed my 12 steps with a Sponsor. The most important step is Step 12; actively working with others. I can honestly say, working with others saves my life, every single day. I have challenged myself to obtain two service positions within a 12 Step fellowship as well as a service commitment as Secretary on the Sunrise Alumni group.
My life today is remarkable. I live a life filled with Hope, Faith and Courage every day. I have been blessed to carry my message with the addict who still suffers at Alpha House and Renfew Detox Centres. Attending meetings and continually working with other women is the bright part of my days. Being a proud member of the Sunrise Alumni, I have had the pleasure of dropping into classes as an out- patient and attending Marble Ceremonies. I signed a full time continuous teaching contract this month and am excited to set up my classroom. Our children, who have been living in foster care for 9 months, are starting to transition back to our care and will be back living with our family full time this Fall. My husband and I have committed to providing a safe family to our children.
I am a proud and grateful member of Sunrise Alumni!

Sunrise Alumni

My name is Isaac and I am a recovered addict.
Today I am recovered with the help of friends, fellowship, a sponsor and God. Not to forget the place where my journey started, Sunrise. My experience at Sunrise was breathtaking along with very spiritual. There were times that I wanted to walk out because I got tired, but Sunrise never gave up on me and for that I could never repay them. My recovery journey has had its bumps in the road but with the tools I learnt at Sunrise today I am able to overcome those bumps and keep pushing for the next day. It’s been such a blessed journey since I decided to let go and let God take over my life. Miracles happen in my life every single day, not because I just put down the drugs and booze, because I put in the work. To all future clients of Sunrise I promise if you put half the work you did into this program as you did in getting the next drink or drug I promise you’ll be amazed with the results! Just keep pushing and never give up. Thank you to Sunrise and the recovery community for my sobriety!
