Société Emmanuel-Grégoire inc.

The Société Emmanuel-Grégoire is a non-profit organization managing the programs of the Pavillon Emmanuel-Grégoire, the Pavillon Prosper-Boulanger, the Résidence Emmanuel-Grégoire, the Agence Emmanuel-Grégoire and the Service d’aide à l’emploi de l’Est.

Our points of service

  • Pavillon Emmanuel-Grégoire

    Opened in December 1984, the Pavillon Emmanuel-Grégoire welcomes offenders under federal jurisdiction. Please note that since July 2011, the Pavillon Emmanuel-Grégoire CRC provides services for a regular clientele. Once dedicated to treating a drug addict clientele, this characteristic of the program is now replaced with a program aiming towards a return to school or work, financial takeover, the development of a supportive social network and fulfilling leisure activities. There is therefore no intensive therapy at the Pavillon Emmanuel-Grégoire CRC and our clientele is not solely composed of drug addicts.

    Program

    Our programs are inspired by reality therapy. Through this approach in line with the basic values of our organization, the resident develops their ability for accountability and learns the behaviours and attitudes that will allow them to deal with today’s social constraints.

    We provide a personalized helping relationship follow-up, suited to the clientele’s needs. Our program suggests four main objectives we believe are essential to reaching personal balance:

    Occupational stability

    A steady occupation constitutes a solid foundation to proper social life and helps feeling valued and successful.

    Personal finances

    A balanced and realistic budget allows one to be autonomous and responsible of their life choices.

    Social network

    Parents and/or friends with a positive influence and on whom one can count on.

    Leisure activities

    Relaxing moments are part of a balanced lifestyle.
