As a resident you are provided with a safe environment to explore the possibilities for your future. You will be given all the support to do this, but you have to be willing to embrace the change, to take off the old thinking, attitudes and behavior patterns.

Missiondale is a place where you will be helped to change your life! It is about change, if you’re not ready to change, this is the wrong place for you. We want you to embrace a process of personal exploration and lasting recovery.

During the Foundation program the emphasis is on digging down deep and breaking up the hard ground.
