The Recovery Community Center (RCC) provides participants with resources to begin the journey of long-term sobriety and recovery. It also serves as a large meeting hall for over 200 people while hosting various Healing House and community events. The RCC is peer-run, meaning the entire staff is in long-term recovery and understands the needs and wants of participants who enter the doors seeking help.

Every Friday, the Healing House community comes together at the RCC to worship, eat dinner, and create conversation per the Alpha Guide. The Alpha Guide opens the floor for our participants to discuss faith and the Lord. On some Fridays, we get to celebrate participants who have reached a specific point in their recovery, share testimonies, or invite guest speakers to express how faith has changed their life!
Family Reunification is a very important step for many people in recovery. This is the healing and renewing of those broken bonds shattered by substance abuse. The RCC provides the Family Reunification Room to meet these needs. It is a safe, comfortable, and private area for supervised and unsupervised visits between families.
The evolution of technology has increased the skill gap between applicants who may not share the same access to resources to obtain these basic computer skills required. At the RCC, we have a computer lab open daily for our participants to regain lost or stolen documents and have an opportunity to learn computer skills while practicing their recovery. This gives our participants a greater chance at securing employment, who are guided by James – our employment specialist. James helps our participants hone in on their computer skills by navigating jobs online and creating necessary documents needed to gain employment.
