24/7 Support

Certified Recovery Support Workers provide 24/7 on-call support to assist any person wanting treatment to get the help they need. While not a guarantee of placement, it gets the process started. At any time of the day or night, people who want help with their addiction can go to Frisbie Memorial Hospital or to the Rochester Police Department. From there, an assessment is made to determine the most appropriate level of care. If an inpatient bed is needed and available, the person is supported through that process. If inpatient treatment is not available at that time, the participant can elect to be placed into the Recovery Center's Telephone Recovery Support program, while they await treatment.

Recovery Coaching

Our Recovery Coaches work with members, either on a 1:1 basis or in a group setting, to help them achieve their self-identified and self-designed recovery goals. They also provide information about available resources in the community. All Recovery Coaches have completed the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) Recovery Coach Academy training.

Community Activities

Our community- and peer-led groups and sober social activities focus on education, employment, health and wellness, life skills, coping, symptom management. Members of the community - themselves or a family member in recovery - can volunteer at the Center to share knowledge, skills and experiences.

Job Search Assistance

Our trained volunteers and staff work with members to identify community employment resources, offer job search and job application support, provide resume writing support, and help members prepare for a job interview.

Peer to Peer Support Services

Peers are people who have experience with their own substance addiction or psychiatric condition. The role of peer support is to help members identify recovery goals and strengths, to acknowledge barriers and brainstorm on ways to overcome those barriers. Peers share experiences on what has worked for them, while maintaining an open mind to different pathways to recovery. Peers model recovery daily and are examples of what recovery can look like.

Telephone Recovery Support

Our Recovery Coaches and trained volunteers call members who have agreed to receive Telephone Recovery Support calls as a means to check-in on a member's sobriety and progress towards recovery goals, and to offer skills coaching and educate members about new Center offerings. Calls to members are placed weekly. However, members can choose how often they would like to be contacted.
