We Need Your Help !!
Dr. Gerald Congdon has graciously offered us an amazing facility. Although the facility is perfect for our purpose, it is currently up for sale. We are seeking ideas for ways to secure the use of this facility for years to come. 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 the highest engagement rate, so far. We believe the fact that all 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 group in Andrews to begin an All Recovery meeting there, on Monday nights, from 7 to 8PM. We are also working with a group interested in starting a similar meeting in the Little River area. In addition, we have volunteer coaches who work with the women in the Women’s Recovery Center in Conway, the women in the Georgetown County 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, J. Ruben Long Detention Center in Conway, 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 location is: 9250 Highway 17 Bypass, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576
