About the Phoenix Society

Since becoming a registered charity in 1992, The Phoenix Society's mission has been to encourage and assist British Columbians in achieving personal, family and community health that is free from substance misuse.

Located in Surrey, BC and serving the Greater Vancouver & Fraser regions, we promote health & wellness in the community by creating inclusive learning spaces where participants uncover their strengths and realistically appraise their challenges.  We then move to action planning, offering the support that's needed in order to advance the fulfilment of life goals.  As a result, some 82% of our participants finished the addiction services program, without returning to substance misuse.

We contribute much of our success to our dedicated and hard-working staff.  With our close-knit organization values that provide a healthy life / work balance as well as numerous events for staff throughout the year and a compassionate leadership team, we ensure that The Phoenix Society is a place where you will value coming to work every day!
