“I have been in recovery since June 20th 2012.
I found recovery the first try! I attended Freedom Session, A.A., N.A., C.A., & Smart Recovery meetings.
I will be celebrating 7 years clean in the N.A. program Feb, 5, 2020 the first time ever in recovery. I equate this mostly to the fact that I attended a Christ-Centered recovery program. I continued to be filled with the Word of God, Bible Study & The Freedom Session 12 Step Christ-Centered Inner Healing Spiritual Program. It healed me from the inside out. I now am honoured to currently facilitate healing at the Launch Pad Recovery Center dealing with past trauma, root cause belief patterns and behaviours that continue to help people like myself strip away addictions.
It is my Passion to Help People find FREEDOM!”

– Founder John Button

Yes. Our staff is experienced and treats the medical and mental health disorders that often co-occur with

What Happens If I Relapse?

Must go to detox for 5 days to be able to come back into the home. We cannot guarantee that you will be sober forever, relapse or what we refer to as “recurrence of symptoms” can be a part of the recovery process.

Acknowledging that substance abuse disorders are a chronic disease, we encourage our clients to contact us or their support group to get back on track right away, limiting the negative consequences of their choices and helping to choose again, more wisely. Based on your individual needs we may
recommend additional care or increased monitoring.
