Welcome to Rising Above

Rising Above is a registered Canadian charity located in Grande Prairie, Alberta. We are known for our Christian-based 6-Month Residential Treatment program, and the Inner Healing support 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 of 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:

  • Holistic 
  • Christian-based 
  • Abstinence-based
  • Non-institutionalized 
  • Live-in residence 
  • Inner Healing Foundation 
  • Affordable
