About SPRINGS RECOVERY CONNECTION

Location:

1930 W COLORADO AVE, COLORADO SPGS, CO 80904, US

Mission Statement

Springs Recovery Connection's mission is to strengthen the recovery community through peer-to-peer and family support, public education, and advocacy. Springs Recovery Connection envisions a community that understands, supports, and embraces recovery from addiction.

Description

Springs Recovery Connection is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit recovery community organization. We are community based citizens, in long term recovery, who want to educate, mentor, and advocate for recovery and long term recovery solutions. We support all roads to recovery.

We are members of the Association of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO) out of D.C. We are one of over 150 such recovery centers in the nation and the first in Colorado Springs.

"Recovery community organizations (RCOs) are the heart and soul of the recovery movement. In the last ten years, RCOs have proliferated throughout the US. They are demonstrating leadership in their towns, cities and states as well as on the national landscape. They have become major hubs for recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carrying out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and becoming players in systems change initiatives. Many are also providing peer-based recovery support services. RCOs share a recovery vision, authenticity of voice and are independent, serving as a bridge between diverse communities of recovery, the addiction treatment community, governmental agencies, the criminal justice system, the larger network of health and human services providers and systems and the broader recovery support resources of the extended community." from www.facesandvoicesofrecovery.org
