Springs Recovery Connection Mission
To strengthen the recovery community through peer and family support, public education and advocacy.
The SRC offices are now open from 9am-4pm, Monday through Friday
Did you know?
23,000,000 Americans are in recovery!

Advocacy and Anonymity can be friends....
You can speak about your own recovery and advocate for the rights of others, as long as you do not involve the twelve-step group by name.
There are tens of thousands of men and women across our country just like you who want to speak out about their recovery experiences while honoring the principles that have worked so well for so many.
Here’s what one person has to say,
I’m feeling better in my sobriety as I work a twelve-step program and am grateful for the blessings it has brought me. I want to reach out and help others who are still in the throes of active addiction or struggling in their recovery because of discriminatory policies and practices.
I hear the terms ‘advocacy’ and ‘anonymity’ all the time, but I’m not sure what they mean or how they apply to me. What can I do to help alcoholics and addicts who have not yet recovered? How can I increase the public’s understanding of addiction and recovery?

The Scoop on our 2020 Annual Breakfast Fundraiser
Springs Recovery Connection's 2020 Come Walk With Me Breakfast (held virtually this year) has raised over $60,000. Our mail out of Loyal Coffee and Biscotti and virtual presentation reached over 1000 people in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. We are so grateful for the support!

It's not too late to donate to support recovery in Colorado Springs.

Behavioral Healthcare for all Coloradans
The time for Behavioral Health Reform in Colorado is now. With a groundswell of support from the
Governor’s Office and stakeholders from all four
corners of the State, reform is not only possible, but a reality. Together, we will ensure that every Coloradan with a behavioral health need receives timely, high-quality and affordable care within their community.
Three and a half million Coloradans have private
insurance or are Medicaid members. Thus, there is a commitment from the Department of Health Care
Policy and Financing (HCPF), which is the State’s
Medicaid agency, and the Colorado Division of
Insurance to align efforts to ensure behavioral health services are provided to all Coloradans. This will help to further promote health equity.

GRASP (Grief Recovery After Substance Passing)
Anyone who has lost a loved one through substance use disorder knows that society treats this loss differently than a death from any other cause.
Grief Recovery After Substance Passing (GRASP) was created to offer understanding, compassion, and support for those who have lost someone they love through accidental death due to substance use disorder.
If you would like more information about the monthly in person GRASP group at SRC or to pre-register for the group, please email:
