Canadian Addiction Recovery Association (CARA)

Mission Statement

Canadian Addiction Recovery Association’s mission is two-fold: to train skilled addiction and mental health counsellors and offer exceptional employee assistance services. We equip individuals with knowledge and compassion to support those on the path to recovery and well-being.

Our training programs produce competent, empathetic counsellors who make a meaningful impact on individuals and families affected by addiction. Continuous education and evidence-based practices keep our counsellors up-to-date with advancements in treatment.

Our employee assistance services promote workplace well-being, providing personalized counselling, resources, and support to enhance mental health, productivity, and job satisfaction.

We envision a society where addiction is met with hope and healing, and mental health challenges are understood and treated effectively. Our core values of compassion, integrity, and respect create a culture of empathy and trust.
