The Culture

At the Bonnyville Indian-Metis Rehabilitation Centre, We Bring a Welcoming Culture.

We take value in:

  • Treating everyone with respect and dignity.
  • Offering a comprehensive and innovative residential alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment program that is responsive to the unique and individual needs of adults.
  • Ensuring environment is client centered and holistic in nature.
  • Believing that confidential, non-judgmental individualized support is essential to the recovery process.
  • Believing we are making a difference to the quality of life for all.

About the Rehabilitation Centre:

Built in 1976, the centre was incorporated under the Societies Act of the province of Alberta on the 31st day of August 1973. The facility is owned by the province of Alberta, sits on crown land, and is approximately twelve kilometres west of Bonnyville, Alberta.

This provides a very peaceful and serene setting for an individual to begin their recovery process from their addiction. Whether it is alcohol, drugs or both, the centre provides the culture and setting needed for holistic healing practices.

Our centre, if viewed from the sky, was shaped like an eagle when first built (the long hallway, administration area and the gym were not built until the 1980’s).

The men and ladies rooms are the eagle’s wings; the body is the dining room and the eagle’s head is the kitchen area. The lower lounge is shaped like a tepee. It has 12 very tall pillars representing the 12 steps of A.A. and the 12 Tepee Teachings.

The Bonnyville Indian-Metis Rehabilitation Centre is governed by a board of directors representing two settlements and seven member First Nations.
