We focus on cultivating your strengths and supporting you in your personal whole health wellness and recovery goals. We accomplish this by providing Peer-led classes at the Center that have been proven to benefit you in your recovery journey. We also provide one on one Peer support with a Certified Peer Support Specialist that will support you in your person-centered goals and connect you with resources in the community. Our goal is to activate self-management, hold on to hope for you and provide an environment where you can feel free to be your best self.
