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.

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.
