The Out of the Ashes Bursary Committee has received many requests from older adults for educational support. Given the nature of addictions, many of those in recovery are over the age of 35 by the time they consider pursuing further education. The committee has decided to expand the age criteria to Ages 17 – 29 and 30 years and older. We are pleased to support more people in recovery in achieving their educational pursuits which in turn will benefit our community.   The Committee will manage the potential increase of applications via an interview process for those shortlisted for a bursary. If you have any questions about these changes, please contact us. 

 

We want to thank Health Science X for helping us to keep our clients and staff safer with Point of Care Testing for COVID-19. HSX is donating POC Tesing to our organization and for this we are truly grateful. 

 

ABOUT PHOENIX CENTRE 

Phoenix Centre originated with the Parents Alert Society in 1973 with a group of concerned parents focused on the dramatic increase of drug use by the youth of Kamloops. This group established Adonis House shortly after near the downtown core. This program supported those with addictions by demonstrating an alternative lifestyle and encouraging clients to make constructive change. The program operated until 1979 when Adonis House was converted to a Detox facility and the Society began the development of Phoenix Centre. In 1982 the Society name formally changed to Kamloops Society for Alcohol and Drug Services although most still refer to the organization as Phoenix Centre.

 

 

 

 

Phoenix Centre also provides one-on-one and group counselling for youth and their families via the Raven Program. Osprey Place offers Day Treatment programming for adjudicated youth and non-ajudicated female youth (referrals via Ministry for Children & Family Development) and Adolescent Outreach provides support & counselling to youth in schools and community.
