  • What is an Addiction Recovery Support Center (ARSC)
    An Addiction Recovery Support Center offers a set of non-clinical, peer-led activities that engage, educate and support individuals and families successfully to make life changes necessary to establish, maintain and enhance recovery (health and wellness) from substance use disorders. The recovery activities are community-based services for individuals with a substance use disorder; and consist of activities that promote recovery, self-determination, self-advocacy, well-being, and independence. Activities are individualized, recovery-focused, and based on a relationship that supports a person’s ability to promote their own recovery. Activities include social support, linkage to and coordinating among other service providers, eliminating barriers to independence and continued recovery. Activities may occur in the center or in other locations in the community. Addiction Recovery Support Services are holistic in nature, support people with moving beyond their substance use disorder and toward a life of self-directed recovery. During scheduled hours, Addiction Recovery Support Services may include but are not limited to the following support topics which may occur at a physical location or in the community.
  • How can this help Douglasville?
    Many individuals needing services are unable to connect with meaningful resources due to the lack of support or awareness. There is an increased need for services during the COVID pandemic and due to the impacts of the economy. The RCO is a place to provide a point of connection for all members of Douglas County to find the wrap around services they need as well as build relationships with community members. By connecting with others we begin the healing process.
  • What do we offer?
    We are a place for people from all recovery backgrounds to socialize, find services, volunteer, attend workshops, read books, create art, or connect online. The RCO offers peer coaching, art classes, recovery support groups, community workshops, and so much more. The RCO is a safe place for people in recovery and allies of recovery to find comfort, resources, and support for their journey.
  • Who does this benefit?
    The whole community! Providing a safe space for those seeking recovery services, individual support, or simply a place to connect to people who understand their journey, we can end the cycle of substance use disorder.
  • How do we get funding?
    RCOs have been successfully managed throughout the state of Georgia for several years. They have received funding through state and federal grant opportunities, community partnerships, and private donations. 100% of donations are poured directly back into the recovery community.
