Pacifica Treatment Centre Society

A run for your money! Adding exercise to addiction treatment can strengthen the effects of recovery. That’s why Pacifica Treatment Centre has created an exercise program for both current clients and program grads. Walking and running groups as well as hiking and cycling clubs are improving our health and leading to better overall outcomes. All clients also now receive a 12-month pass to City of Vancouver community centres where they can skate, swim and workout. Pacifica grads lives have changed thanks to exercise. Some examples: (names have been changed): * Nick is training for his first marathon. * David was estranged from his father for 23 years; with running as a common hobby, the two have now reconnected. * Sarah started a Facebook page and led three hikes for people in recovery. * John has become a certified yoga instructor and now shares his new-found passion for mindfulness with people from all walks of life. The best news? All remain in recovery. Your donation is an investment in our community’s good health. Thank you for giving us a running start!
