Freedom’s Path Recovery Society

Counselling Services


Freedom’s Path Recovery Society provides free one on one addictions counselling services and group treatment workshops for anyone interested or in need of specific or general counselling.

The Pathway to Freedom Workshop addresses causes, symptoms, and solutions for living with unhealthy behavioral patterns, alcoholism and addiction in all of its forms including both chemical and process. Individuals learn to understand and begin the recovery process, through the 12 steps, in a manner that is relatable to each participant. Workshops can be tailored to meet a variety of needs. They can be held for any number of participants privately and confidentially at a location of your choice and can accommodate a variety of time schedules.

Both individual and group counselling are targeted towards individuals struggling with chemical & behavioral dependency. In particular, the services are geared towards people who would like to improve their:

  • Connections and relationships with others
  • Overall quality of life
  • Ability to achieve personal development objectives
  • Self-awareness

Our open groups are held at the Wild Rose United Church in Calgary, Alberta, but can be held at an alternative location based on the interests of a particular group. One on one counselling is either held at the Wild Rose United Church or at an alternate location if more convenient.

Counselling and group workshops are performed by David Lewry, the Executive Director and addictions counsellor. He is a community-driven consultant and leader; a professional with over 20 years of experience in the non-profit sector with the ability to share and translate ideas to others.
