WHAT IS AN RCO?
Recovery Community Organizations (RCO) are developing across the country at the local level to address the needs of people in or seeking recovery. We know that when recovery organizes in reaching out to others, recovery expands and grows.
A Recovery Community Organization is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. These organizations organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and out reach programs, and/or provide peer-based recovery support services
IN OTHER WORDS
We're here for people in recovery. We're offering free peer individual and group check-ins with CARES-trained staff to help you navigate life in recovery. Need space for a meeting (12-step or otherwise)? We've got it. Looking for new types of art, dance, yoga therapy? We'll find someone who can offer it. Unsure how to get your GED, find a recovery-friendly job or find adequate housing? We can help guide you.
We're here for families. Whether you're concerned about a loved one with substance use disorder or looking to understand more about the science of addiction recovery, we can offer you education and support. Substance use and mental health disorders in your family affect you, too.
We're here for the community. The recovery community in Augusta is strong and growing stronger every day. We're professionals, students, volunteers, parents, workers, leaders and innovators with much to offer the CSRA. That starts with outreach and education about substance use and mental health disorders. It starts with providing youth education and prevention services, installing staff supports for medical facilities and creating a local hub for all things recovery related. It starts with doing our part to speak our recovery out loud to destigmatize substance use disorder so we can better serve our community.
We're here for Augusta.
