Welcome to our website!

CRF The Alberta Seventh Step Society is a private, not for profit society duly licensed and overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.  The Society was started by Patrick Graham in Drumheller Institution in 1971 and became a non-profit corporation on June 13, 1974.  The Community Residential Facility (halfway house) in Calgary has been operating since 1977.  We provide a wide range of pre and post-release services for federal offenders.

What makes us unique is our commitment to a proven process of self-help and peer support.
  • We are a process, not a program.
  • We get offenders back into the community so both are safe.
  • We help people change their lives and minds.
  • We help people stay out of jail.
  • Our Seven Steps were developed by inmates to demonstrate their promise and commitment.

“The self-help concept was new to me but had particular relevance as I’d been convicted of property offenses and sentenced to jail plus probation. I quickly found that Seventh Step was a way of life and a positive road map for living. Participation in self-help groups assisted me to develop leadership skills and gave me a sense of purpose. Seventh Steps isn’t for everyone; but for those who have a sincere desire to change and better themselves, it is a definite formula for success.” - George M.
