Creating A Lifestyle of Recovery

We believe that recovery is the hope and healing that can overcome the devastation of addiction.

Recovery Connection is a culture of recovery in the heart of our community.

We Care

We exist to provide resources and support for addicted persons or persons in recovery from addiction, as well as their families, friends and support members.

Your "Home"

A visible, physical location, where, by providing a variety of services we put a face on recovery.

Research Supported

We use evidence-based practices and trained staff, interns, and community volunteers to provide answers to anyone seeking assistance in their recovery process.

Structured Support

A recovery resource offering a structured schedule of recovery-related workshops, training, groups, activities and social events.

Our GOAL is to help BUILD

A SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY

around those struggling with addiction.

Group Support Strategies

An abundance of resources and information about treatment providers, self-help meetings, employment, education, healthcare, and spiritual support.  Programming and support for families and friends of addicted persons.   CLICK HERE for a list of recovery group meeting times and locations.

Circle of Support

Constructive and active family engagement in the recovery process is essential if the family is to heal from the destructive impact of addiction.  To move on, families need a variety of supports, information and skills.  Families need a place where they can feel safe to process the complicated and complex emotions that arise in the face of addiction and recovery.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical, and available almost everywhere. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem.

 

 

SMART Recovery Tools

The core reason for including family in treatment of substance abusers is more for the benefit of the family member than for the person in recovery.  A family member’s emotional and physical health improves as they come to understand their pursuit of enabling, co-dependency, and/or denial.   To learn more visit smartrecovery.org 

Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous offers recovery to addicts around the world. We focus on the disease of addiction rather than any particular drug.  Our message is broad enough to attract addicts from any social class or nationality.  When new members come to meetings, our sole interest is in their desire for freedom from active addiction and how we can be of help.

Meeting the Special Needs of Clients

We believe that recovery is the hope and healing that can overcome the devastation of addiction. Our stance is that recovery should encompass and impact all aspects of life. Having an effective support system is crucial. Recovery Connection’s focus is to provide recovery support and assistance that focuses on the holistic well-being of mind, body, and spirit. This facilitates lifestyle balance, which we believe to be the hallmark of successful recovery.

Life-Skills Training

Life-skills training provides participants with opportunities to develop self advocacy and sufficiency skills that are necessary for a person to succeed in their recovery.  Please call us for more information about upcoming events!

Recovery-Safe Social Activities

Connection with others is necessary in order for a person to remain successful in their recovery. Recovery Connection offers meetings and social activities throughout the week in order for people in recovery to engage and connect with others

Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring is a program that trains community members to be mentors for those in recovery. Mentors in this program give encouragement, hope, assistance, guidance, and support to addicted individuals.

“Recovery to me, is freedom from a lifestyle that was going nowhere fast.”

At Recovery Connection, we are always happy to answer any questions you might have.

Why is it important to involve the whole family in a recovery program?

The pain, frustration, and helplessness experienced by families and loved ones due to addiction are immense.  Families and loved ones experience isolation, shame and guilt; often realizing they are alone with nowhere to turn.  Addressing the parallel process of addiction and recovery so healing can begin is essential for family members and loved ones.

What types of addiction can Recovery Connection help with?

Recovery Conncetion helps people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors, including: drug abuse, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, sexual addiction, and problem addiction to other substances and activities.
