The More Than a Fad Story

More Than a Fad was previously a thrift store called “Treats ‘N Treasures” in the same location. Owned by Shepherd’s Care Foundation, it was generously gifted to Adeara Recovery Centre in early 2020. The store had formerly raised funds for supporting seniors living in Shepherd’s Care facilities, but was no longer a fit. This offer came at a time of financial need for Adeara amidst the troubling times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the spring and summer months, Adeara assembled a small and dedicated team to turn over a new page in the store. On July 2nd, we launched the new store as More Than a Fad Thrift Store and began our thrift store journey.

About Adeara Recovery Centre

Adeara is an accredited addiction recovery centre for women and their children, located in Edmonton. Our long-term, faith-based program is offered in a residential setting, guiding women through each stage of their recovery journey—from addiction to sobriety, and ultimately reintegrating into the community.

Our addiction program provides:

  • Safe shelter for women and their children with 24/7 care and support
  • A fully furnished suite for each woman (and her children)
  • A 1-year recovery program with opportunity to extend the program on an individual basis
  • Daily programming addressing addiction in four key areas: biological, social, spiritual, and psychological.
  • Mother and child-centered events and classes
  • Transition support into independent living

At the heart of our program is faith-based practice. We believe in the spiritual, transformative power found in the biblical Christ, who provides hope, healing and restoration to every single life as they are now. Alongside the bio-psycho-social aspects of our recovery program, residents are offered the opportunity for spiritual development at their own pace.
