Fraser House Society was founded on October 13, 1967. Initially Fraser House was an in-patient addiction treatment program for men. In 1987 Fraser House transitioned to a non-residential counselling and prevention service for anyone with concerns around substance use, including youth and adults.
Fraser House Society is a non-profit, charitable organization, governed by a voluntary Board of Directors who represent a cross-section of the local community. The Society is registered as a Canadian charitable organization under the Income Tax Act of Canada.
Fraser House Society seeks to promote a healthy community by supporting, developing and implementing effective prevention and counselling strategies for the residents of Mission when it comes to substance use, misuse, and addiction. Our programs strive to meet each person where they are, not imposing a particular model or method of treatment or recovery. Client centered and harm reduction approaches are utilized.
Fraser House Society believes . . .
- that everyone has personal worth and must be treated with dignity, fairness and compassion
- that everyone has potential to become a responsible contributing citizen
- that by partnering in the provision of accessible quality services we can assist in bringing about positive change contributing to a healthier community
