The Ozanam Wellness Center began in 2009 to more effectively and compassionately meet the needs of the most vulnerable individuals in our City who are struggling with addiction and mental health issues. By combining the "best practices" of spirituality and clinical methods, we are addressing the whole person who is suffering, and empowering our guests to make positive changes for ongoing recovery. The overarching vision of the Wellness Center is to foster right relationship: justice, love and peace among all who pass through our doors, with a special focus on those who are struggling with addiction to drugs and/or alcohol and mental health issues.
The Ozanam Wellness Center consists of a daily program of stress reduction techniques, exercise, selections of personal and spiritual development as well as health topic sessions. We offer several free group activities each day as well as lunch to all participants. Using a harm reduction model, the Ozanam Wellness Center focuses on lending continuing support to those who are struggling with substance abuse issues and mental health issues.
Feel free to drop in to participate in one of our classes or support groups, or to share a meal with others in our community.
Hours: Monday through Friday, 9:20am to 1:30pm for regular programming. Lunch is served for those who are participating in our program from 11:30am to 12:15pm.
