Anyone who has had the opportunity to visit New Brunswick will of course know of its beautiful natural settings, camping, hiking and walking trails.
But locals also know about the wonderful offerings on hand when they visit their capital city of New Brunswick, Fredericton.

Fredericton’s historic streets are lined with unique artisan shops, cafes, restaurants, theatre and fashion sectors. The historic Garrison District and the legislative assembly showcase some of the area’s rich history, while the nightlife certainly isn’t rooted in centuries past!

From locally sourced cuisine to engaging theatre, bands and art shows Fredericton is indeed a capital city worth the moniker
Fredericopolis silvæ filia nobilis (“Fredericton, noble daughter of the forest”).

Searidge Sponsored SMART Recovery® Meetings

SMART Recovery® is an abstinence-based, not-for-profit organization with a sensible self-help program for people having problems with drinking and using. It includes many ideas and techniques to help you change your life from one that is self-destructive and unhappy to one that is constructive and satisfying.

SMART Recovery® is not a spin-off of Alcoholics Anonymous. No one will label you an “alcoholic”, an “addict” or “diseased” nor “powerless”, and if you do not believe in a religion or spirituality, that’s fine, too. We teach common sense self-help procedures designed to empower you to abstain and to develop a more positive lifestyle. When you succeed at following our approach, you may graduate from the program, or you may stay around to help others.


Searidge Alcohol Rehab offers a variety of aftercare programs to our alumni to help ensure their sobriety is sustained. SMART Recovery® group meetings have proven to be incredibly beneficial to our Searidge alumni. SMART Recovery® meetings give our graduate residents the tools and support they require to remain sober.
