Addiction Recovery for Women

Adeara is an accredited addiction recovery centre for women and their children. Our long-term, faith-based program guides women through each stage of their healing journey—from addiction to recovery, and ultimately reintegrating into healthy community.

Our organization began in 1998 as an extension of Edmonton’s Inner City Mission. We grew out of an escalating need for a long-term recovery program for women in the downtown core. Formerly known as the Edmonton Dream Centre or “The Pink House,” we first operated out of a house on 96 Street.

In 2005, we moved out of the inner city to an apartment complex. This new facility had a dramatic impact on the effectiveness of Adeara’s programming. At-risk women now had a new safe space to heal—away from the challenges of the inner city. In 2017, we rebranded as Adeara Recovery Centre. Adeara comes from the word “strength” in Hebrew, which we felt perfectly encapsulated the women of Adeara. Today, we look forward to a future of growing our impact throughout Edmonton and beyond.

Our Mission

Our vision is to see women in addiction experience freedom through a life of recovery.

Our mission is to empower and equip women to live in sustainable recovery through hope, healing, and restoration by providing long-term, faith-based programming, counselling, and life skills support.

Our values are serving women and their children with love, compassion, dignity, respect, integrity and accountability.
