Welcome to Rising Above
Rising Above is a registered Canadian charity located in Grande Prairie, Alberta. We are known for our 6-Month Residential Treatment program and the Inner Healing supports we offer to members of the community as well as clients within our program. Our Residential Treatment program first started in 2007 out of a great need for treatment options in Northern Alberta. We are pleased to offer an all encompassing program that extends help to anyone who is struggling in a cycle of defeat. This includes, but is not limited to drug and alcohol abuse, patterns or homelessness and criminal activity, gambling and pornography addiction, anger issues, anxiety disorders, shame, low self-esteem, and so on.
Below are some key points on what helps to make our program successful for our clients:
- Live-in residence
- Inner Healing foundation

Accreditation - In Process
Rising Above is excited to announce that our organization is working alongside the Canadian Accreditation Council to become accredited. The process we are engaging in provides a complete evaluation of our organization, programs and services in accordance with the Canadian Accreditation Council's 2019 Edition of Standards.
Accreditation is an important step in ensuring organizations are continuously working towards quality improvement, revisiting and revising policies and procedures to offer the best care possible, and sees that programs and services are consistent throughout every level of the organization.
Accreditation also shows funders that the organization is committed to changing and adapting programs to ensure clients are receiving optimal care. Clients families and friends can be assured that their loved one is in the good care of an organization that is viable, credible, and accountable.
Please keep us in your prayers as we embark on the journey towards accreditation!
