We have moved into our new center! We are currently holding several recovery meetings each week, Recovery Coaching services (at no charge to the recoverees), providing Peer and Family Recovery Coach training classes, providing educational events in the form of a Recovery Education Series, and additional services as the need and opportunity arise.
We are working with Shoreline Behavioral Health Services, Medical University of SC, and Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital to provide recovery services and direction for persons who present to the Emergency Department with Substance Use problems. Of the three hospitals involved in the Emergency Department pilot program, the group at Waccamaw Community Hospital have consistently high engagement rates. We believe the fact that most of the current workers at Waccamaw are FAVOR trained Peer Recovery Coaches may be the critical factor in the strong response from the patients at that facility.
We have assisted a groups in Andrews and Longs to begin All Recovery meetings there. The Andrews meeting is held at the Church of God on Morgan Ave., on Monday nights, from 7 to 8PM. The Longs meeting is held at Waterbrook Church, in the Bingo Plaza on Hwy.9, on Friday nights from 6:30 to 7:30. In addition, we have volunteer coaches who work with the women in the Women’s Recovery Center in Conway, the re-entry program at J. Rueben Long Detention Center, and residents of some of the Recovery Houses in the area. We hope to expand those services to include other hospital ERs, Drug Court, and several local agencies such as Vocational Rehabilitation and Helping Hands.
The majority of our services are provided by trained volunteers, at no charge to the persons who receive them!
It is only with your help and support that we can continue to provide these very successful programs and extend our efforts to help more people. We are proving that the paradigm of recovery must shift to succeed in the current deadly climate of substance use. Help us reach these goals and make big changes in the lives of substance users, their families, and our communities!
Our new location is: 4953 Highway 17 Bypass South, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
