“Fraserside helped me to get a suite here. It made the transition easy. Fraserside helped me out of a difficult no-win situation. The staff are approachable and willing to help at any time.”

“I was overweight. Every day my worker asked me if I had done my walk. When I hadn’t, he said he would walk with me, so I didn’t miss a day. I have lost weight with his encouragement.”

Fraserside also offers counselling services for people who are dealing with or impacted by substance use issues, as well as for children who have witnessed domestic violence.

Stories

“I finally completed detox, after three unsuccessful attempts. I’m judgmental enough of myself without having to worry about others’ judgments. I have received the acceptance from Fraserside I never found before. It actually is fun to come to Fraserside.”

“When I first moved into the community from a facility for men, I did not expect to be given furniture, bedding and appliances. Fraserside gave me these and it actually helped me out a lot. It showed strong team effort by the staff.”
