The Center for Recovery Resources Hours to Expand
Center has been Officially Open for a Month
The Center for Recovery Resources, a community program of TLC Family Resource Center, will be expanding their hours starting on Monday, Aug. 6. The Center will provide services Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Center is located at 1 Pleasant Street Suite 104 in Claremont.
“The Center has officially been open for one month and we are ready to expand our office hours in order to provide additional support to the community," said manager Wayne Miller. “The long-term goal is to be open seven days a week, but that will require the support and assistance of committed volunteers from the community."
The Center is a communal space for individuals and families seeking support for substance misuse and addiction-related issues. The Center also serves as an educational hub for community members and service providers who are interested in pursuing recovery-focused training opportunities. They offer an array of free, peer-based, non-clinical programming, and services including individualized recovery planning, peer support groups, educational workshops, and drug-free/sober community events.
“In addition to general volunteer support, we are also looking for people in the recovery community to host peer support meetings including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, as well as SMART Recovery and other formats. Since the 12 step recovery programs are not affiliated with any outside group or organization, The Center for Recovery Resources would only be providing the space for these communities to meet," said Miller. "Our schedule is currently open and meeting hosts are not limited to our regular office hours, so stop in and let's talk."
Community members who are interested in learning more about The Center for Recovery Resources are invited to the ribbon-cutting and open house event that will be held on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. There will be refreshments and the event is free.
