Recovery Engagement Center

Recovery Engagement Center (REC) is a low barrier community center for someone who is seeking recovery. It is intended to be a walk-in center, in the community, that is warm, welcoming and non-threatening. An individual who needs to find resources, help, or just a cup of coffee can drop in and feel welcome. The goal of a REC is to be a hub for recovery and to serve as a clearing house for recovery resources for the community. This is a place where faith-based providers can have events, 12-step meetings can occur, treatment referrals can be made, and so forth.

The point of the REC is that a consumer is met by a warm and welcoming person who gives him or her hope that recovery is possible right now. We have the resources available today to assist them to take the next step. It is a collective effort built through collaboration with community members. The goal is to create a clearinghouse of information, support, and resources for individuals coping with addiction and substance abuse issues.

A REC is volunteer-driven. It is a place where people can connect with others and get care and resources to enhance recovery and prevent relapse. It is low barrier – meaning you can come in without an appointment and it feels safe and hopeful – like home. Also, there is no expectation of a period of sobriety, so you are not turned away if you only have a day clean.
