Your 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 community education and outreach programs, and provide peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS). The broadly defined recovery community-people in long-term recovery, their families, friends and allies, including recovery professionals-includes organizations whose members reflect religious, spiritual and secular pathways of recovery. The sole mission of an RCO is to mobilize resources within and outside of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addition. Public education, policy advocacy and peer-based recovery support services are the strategies through which this mission is achieved. -Valentine, P., White, W. & Taylor, P. (2007)

What is a Peer Support Specialist?
A person with lived experience and specialized training with a passion to share their transformational journey with someone who has a burning desire to improve their wellbeing and quality of life. Not only do peer support specialists walk with the recoveree in their recovery journey, they also provide the recoveree with all available resources to assist in the recovery process including, but not limited to, employment resources, connection to medical care, connection to mental health providers, information on different pathways of recovery and other recovery support resources, and connection to safe and sober living homes.
What We Believe
Recovery is a reality in the lives of millions. There are many pathways of recovery. Recovery flourishes in supportive communities. Recovery is a voluntary process. Recovery is person-driven. The individual is the one who knows best what will work in their recovery process. Recovering individuals are a part of the solution. Recovery is an individual process as defined by the individual.
