Recovery Happens Here

The Peer Recovery Support Center is a free peer-driven, peer-led community space supported by the Brien Center. This center provides individuals in recovery from substance use, as well as families and loved ones affected by addiction, the opportunity to both offer and receive support in their community environment. This welcoming space is grounded in the values and principles of Recovery and Multiple Pathways. Programming is based on national standards and best practices in providing peer recovery support services and reflective of peer choice.

Hope – Community – Empowerment

A guiding principle of the Have Hope Center is the belief that people need human connection, community inclusion, and peer support, as well as access to non-clinical resources, to build recovery capital, improve quality of life and sustain recovery. This is achieved via education and capacity building, social events, recreational and wellness activities, one on one peer support, community engagement and support groups.
