Our vision is to build a community of peer support for people with mental health and addiction issues. Since opening September 1, 2015 we have:
- Over 46000 visitors through the door-lots of repeat customers!
- 23000 volunteer hours in over 5600 shifts.
- Over 3500 referrals to community resources.
- Over 10000 attendees of our various workshops and classes (Be sure to check our calendar!)
- Over 30000 attendees of our various anonymous groups
- 3000 Recovery Peer Volunteer coaching sessions
- Over 500 counseling sessions
We work with people to enter and engage in recovery from addictions and behavioral health disorders through peer-to-peer interaction and evidence-based practices to promote a healthy community.
The vision of the Latah Recovery Community Center, Inc. is to create a culture of wellness and positivity that supports long-term recovery for those that face challenges from mental health and substance abuse disorders.
The Center is committed to a peer support model and much of the work is done by volunteers who are in recovery. The Center provides recovery support services that promote recovery through advocacy, education, and service. The Center strives to end discrimination surrounding behavioral health issues and remove barriers to recovery while ensuring people in recovery and their supporters are valued with dignity and respect. The Center seeks to be the voice for those in recovery.
The Center believes in meeting people where they are and not pushing one form of recovery over another. We recognize there are many pathways to recovery and focus on potential, rather than pathology. It is not up to The Center to determine if someone is in recovery, but to the individual. Individuals are considered to be in recovery if they say they are. The Center offers hope of a new way of living and ongoing support.
