Our Mission

Recovery is Happening connects individuals impacted by substance use disorder with personalized pathways to recovery. With compassion, empathy, and dedication, we're here to help you every step of the way.

WHAT WE DO

Across our organization we work with people in recovery and the organizations and institutions that serve them, integrating services and collaborating with other providers as part of a comprehensive system of care. We place a special emphasis on Peer Support services where people with lived experience in long term recovery provide a wide range of one-on-one personalized support to people who are seeking recovery.

Recovery Community Organization: A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. These organizations organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and provide peer-based recovery support services. The broadly defined recovery community  people in long-term recovery, their families, friends and allies, including recovery-focused addiction and recovery professionals  includes organizations whose members reflect religious, spiritual and secular pathways of recovery.

WE ARE ARCO CERTIFIED!
