Episode 11: Regenesis Centre For Recovery

Rege­n­e­sis Cen­tre For Recovery’s mis­sion is to acknowl­edge the role of oppres­sion based on iden­ti­ty and its effect on addic­tion and men­tal health. By increas­ing acces­si­bil­i­ty of trau­ma-informed care through evi­dence-based prac­tice, they aim to cater their pro­gram to those who have his­tor­i­cal­ly been under­served in these areas of health­care. RCR’s man­date is to cul­ti­vate a life-long rela­tion­ship of pos­i­tive sup­port and com­mu­ni­ty involve­ment with each of their clients.

Inspired by the Greek word, rege­n­e­sis, mean­ing renew­al or rebirth, they strive to stay true to our name, pro­vid­ing clients at RCR the fresh start that they deserve. Trau­ma-informed care, com­pas­sion, and a sup­port­ive com­mu­ni­ty are at the heart of our work, while evi­dence-based prac­tice strong­ly influ­ences our ther­a­peu­tic values.

Rege­n­e­sis Cen­tre For Recov­ery pri­or­i­tizes the inclu­sion of tra­di­tion­al­ly mar­gin­al­ized groups such as women and gen­der non-con­form­ing peo­ple with intake pri­or­i­ty giv­en to those iden­ti­fy­ing as Indige­nous peo­ples and/​or mem­bers of the 2SLGBTTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty. They serve as an exten­sion to exist­ing addic­tions care by pro­vid­ing a more grad­ual tran­si­tion between tra­di­tion­al pri­ma­ry treat­ment and inde­pen­dent com­mu­ni­ty living.
