Peer-Run Recovery Centers

Recovery centers are places where people in recovery from mental health challenges and substance abuse can find hope, healing and the tools they need to reach their goals. Peer Recovery Specialists (PRSs) and volunteers provide an environment where peers can:

  • Encourage one another toward independence in housing, education, and jobs.
  • Connect with and find hope and inspiration from others in recovery.
  • Share hobbies, skills and talents.
  • Discover community resources, network and build self-confidence.
  • Enjoy social activities in a casual environment full of people who have traveled similar paths.
