Mark Haden – Clinical Supervisor – Addiction Services – Vancouver Coastal Health – Adjunct Professor University of British Columbia


“In my capacity as addictions counsellor for the Cool Aid Community Health Center I have had many clients over the past approach me seeking alternative resources for supportive fellowship, and for whom other models are not acceptable. I have had consistent positive feedback from referrals to the LifeRing group for many of these clients. This organization offers a viable alternative for ongoing support to many people in recovery who are seeking support but who find other approached does not suit them or their life style. To this date all my responses from clients has been positive and many clients flourish in the environment provided by LifeRing. I continue to offer this group as a very positive and helpful resource in our community whenever an opportunity presents.”
