Our Program

Our Programs

We provide structured programs in safe, comfortable, and home-like residential environments. We emphasize individual empowerment and self-responsibility.

Within the program at New Dawn, our residents are introduced to The Women's Way Through the 12 Steps, as well as a variety of self-help programs

Within our two 2nd-stage programs (New Day & New Way), women are able to choose the recovery module that their personal needs and preferences (ie: 12-Step, 16-Step, AA, NA, Smart Recovery, Lifering, etc.).

Additional to the core program structure of each of our three programs, residents create a personal recovery plan and is then supported to achieve her self-identified goals.

Chrysalis Subsidized Housing Program

We also have a limited amount of spaces in our Independent Supported Housing Program (sponsored by BC Housing), which is available to women who have completed one of our 2nd-stage recovery programs and maintained abstinence for a minimum of one year. Women who meet the criteria can apply for a subsidy and if approved, can remain in market housing for up to 18 months.  Depending on availability, extensions may be possible and are assessed on an individual basis.
