Our philosophy is rooted in the unwavering belief in the transformative power of individuals and the effectiveness of the seven-step approach, guiding offenders and ex-offenders on their journey towards achieving and sustaining their freedom.
The Alberta Seventh Step Programs are dedicated to empowering offenders and ex-offenders on their path to becoming responsible and accountable members of our community. We believe in the transformative potential of every individual, and our tailored initiatives are designed to provide the necessary support, resources and guidance.
The self-help concept was new to me but had particular relevance as I’d been convicted of property offenses and sentenced to jail plus probation. I quickly found that Seventh Step was a way of life and a positive road map for living. Participation in self-help groups assisted me to develop leadership skills and gave me a sense of purpose. The Seventh Step isn’t for everyone; but for those who have a sincere desire to change and better themselves, it is a definite formula for success.
