Recovery Coaching: Sign up to receive one-on-one support from a trained peer who has lived experiences like yours. Learn more about recovery coaching here. Once you have maintained your own recovery for a year or more, if you’re interested in becoming a recovery coach, we can support you to reach your desire to give back what you have received!
Telephone Recovery Support: (TRS) helps people in recovery stay in recovery. Sometimes just a phone call can make the recipient feel wanted, included and cared about. When making the call, the caller will often feel rewarded when they have spoken to someone and can share in their joy, share in their sorrow and know that sometimes just listening and speaking with another person helps them both immensely. Sign up to receive a weekly phone call or volunteer to make phone calls.
Support Groups are the most well known recovery support. The center welcomes groups from all pathways to use our facilities as a warm and welcoming meeting space. To use our facilities for your group, choose a time that is available and a space your group will feel most comfortable in and fill out the Use of Facility form. Cost is determined by ‘group conscience’ and all you have to do after that is abide by the Use of Facility Policies & Code of Conduct!

Harm reduction is a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use. Harm Reduction is also a movement for social justice built on a belief in, and respect for, the rights of people who use drugs. Harm reduction incorporates a spectrum of strategies from safer use, to managed use to abstinence to meet drug users “where they’re at,” addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. Because harm reduction demands that interventions and policies designed to serve drug users reflect specific individual and community needs, there is no universal definition of or formula for implementing harm reduction. - HRC
