The Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre (AARC) is a long-term treatment program for chemically dependent adolescents and their families. Success at AARC is a graduate who is clean and sober, back in school or working, and reunited with his or her family. The program is often the treatment of last resort for young people who have been in jail, in front of the court, suicidal, violent, in psychiatric wards, living on the streets, in other treatment programs, and/or removed from their home. Here at the Alberta Adolescent Recovery Centre, we see miracles happen everyday. When a young person walks through the doors of AARC, they are often desperate, defeated, and completely hopeless. Lives have been destroyed and families have been torn apart. We believe in this program, because we've seen it work - over and over again.
