About Renascent Fellowship:

Founded in 1970, Renascent Fellowship aims to facilitate recovery, education, and prevention relating to substance addictions through programs and services for individuals, families, and organizations. Renascent states that 5.9% of Canadians (2 million people) suffer with substance use disorders. Additionally, only 1% of Canadians (or roughly 17% of those with disorders) receive publicly funded treatment for their substance use disorders. Renascent offers comprehensive addiction treatment programs using the abstinence-based 12-step model, family programs, and alumni services.

Renascent Fellowship’s Residential, Outpatient and Continuing Care Treatment programs made up 92% of total program spending in F2018. Of this, 66% of programs were for men and 34% were for women. Renascent offers gender-specific rehabilitation programs to address the unique concerns of men and women. Renascent operates four rehabilitation centres across Ontario. In F2018, the charity says that it had 26,224 phone calls to and from the Access Centre, which its head office. Renascent reports that 1,424 people received treatment, and 897 people were admitted to in-patient treatment at one of its centres. Additionally, 251 people participated in one-on-one counselling.

Renascent Fellowship’s Family Care Program made up 6% of total program spending in F2018. The charity says that drug and alcohol addiction is a family disease, and therefore offers integrated treatment options for family clients aged 7 and up. The Family Care Program is tailored to meet the needs of everyone impacted by a family member’s drinking or drug use. Renascent reports that 276 people participated in a Family Care Program in F2018.

Renascent Fellowship’s Alumni Services program made up 3% of total program spending in F2018. This program facilitates a lifelong recovery community to all Renascent clients. Services include weekly emails to alumni (practical recovery advice from experts, personal insights, etc.), regular seminars and workshops, sober social events, and retreats.
