COVID-19 RESPONSE

Focus On Recovery – Augusta places the highest value on the health and well-being of peers who visit the RCO. That’s more important than ever as Augusta and the CSRA are now directly touched by the coronavirus global pandemic.

That is why we are closing our physical location at the end of day on Tues., March 17.

But we’re also incredibly aware that the mental and emotional health of peers is important – as is the health of their recovery. We’re a recovery community organization providing support for people recovering from substance use disorder and other mental health disorders. As the stresses of daily life increase as we all face new challenges in uncertain times -- talking to a peer coach, having a safe space, having an outlet are all vitally important to maintaining our health, too.

Starting Wednesday, March 18:

-- Christian, Jessica and Tim will have 30-minute tele-peer coaching sessions open during the day. These can be booked through the regular service (see the 'Book Online' button at top of page)

-- FORAugusta will maintain its online and social media presence, responding to requests for help and leveraging our amazing social following to foster the sense of community we all need

-- FORAugusta staff will reach out to peer meeting leaders to offer support in moving meetings online -- either formally or informally

As we move forward, you’ll find all our updates on FORAugusta’s hours, services, meetings and more here at www.foraugusta.org/COVID-19

We’re in this together. We’re a community that checks on one another. We’re a group that cares. We lead with love; we remain hopeful. Whatever we can do FOR one another in the coming months, we’ll do.

No matter what; we do recover.
