Research & Innovation in recovery

The Depth of the Challenge:

  • Across Canada and indeed the world, the struggles of mental health, trauma, and addiction are not hidden. Every year, countless individuals grapple with these challenges, often facing them in silence or without adequate support. This isn't just about numbers, but about real lives, families, and communities that are affected.

Mental Health Stigma:

  • Despite advancements in awareness, a significant stigma surrounding mental health persists. Individuals often avoid seeking help due to fear of judgment or misunderstanding, further deepening their isolation and intensifying their struggles.


Conventional Approaches Falling Short:

  • Traditional recovery methods, while beneficial for some, don't resonate with everyone. One-size-fits-all solutions often fall short in addressing the unique intricacies and complexities of each individual's journey through recovery.


Need for Holistic Healing:

  • There's a growing understanding that healing isn't just about addressing the mind. Physical health is deeply intertwined with mental well-being. There is a need for more holistic approaches that nurture both the body and mind.


The Disconnect in Community:

  • For those in recovery, a supportive community can make a world of difference. Yet, many find themselves feeling disconnected, lacking spaces where they can connect with others who truly understand their journey.

Understanding the problem

The Need for ABRt

Enter the Terminator Foundation's Activity-Based Recovery Therapy (ABRT) program. Traditional approaches to recovery therapy are evolving, and ABRT is at the forefront of this transformation. ABRT isn't just a program; it's a revolution in recovery.


Holistic Recovery

ABRT understands that the path to mental wellness is a journey of the whole self. By engaging in physical activity, individuals not only build physical strength but also cultivate mental resilience, self-belief, and a renewed sense of purpose.


Building Community

Beyond just therapy, ABRT fosters a strong sense of community. Participants train together, heal together, and support each other, creating a space of mutual understanding and encouragement.


Empowering the Individual

ABRT isn't about temporary fixes but about empowering individuals with the tools, strength, and community they need for sustainable recovery. Participants not only face their challenges head-on but also learn to channel them into powerful, positive physical feats, ultimately reclaiming their lives.

As we move forward, the need for such innovative, holistic, and community-centered approaches like ABRT only grows clearer. Together, we can redefine the narrative around mental health, trauma, and addiction, creating a future where everyone has the support and tools they need to thrive.
