What is the Recovery Movement?
The New Recovery Advocacy Movement (NRAM) is a social movement led by people in addiction recovery and their allies aimed at altering public and professional attitudes toward addiction recovery, promulgating recovery-focused policies and programs, and supporting efforts to break intergenerational cycles of addiction and related problems.  The NRAM rose in the late 1990s in reaction to the increased demedicalization, restigmatization, and criminalization of alcohol and other drug (AOD) problems and the resulting cultural pessimism about the prospects of long-term addiction recovery. 

Wellbriety at SRC
The Wellbriety Movement is the 21st Century effort on the part of Native Americans in Recovery to create the opportunity for individuals, families, communities and nations to live sober and balanced lives; healthy lives that are balanced emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. The foundation of the Wellbriety Movement is the Four Laws of Change and the Healing Forest Model.

Families Coping with Addiction Need Support and Funding. Tell the Senate to Take Action!

Addiction is a treatable illness. There’s strong evidence showing that when family members are involved in their loved ones’ care, the chances of improved health and lasting recovery get much better. 

A bipartisan bill, the Family Support Services for Addiction Act, provides support and funding to local community organizations for critical services like family therapy, training and education, and crisis management.

Volunteer at Springs Recovery Connection
Springs Recovery Connection envisions a community that understands, supports, and embraces recovery from addiction.
Springs Recovery Connection is our community’s “Welcome Center to Recovery.” Using innovative approaches not available anywhere else in our area, SRC offers new hope to individuals and families suffering with substance use disorders. Are you in long term recovery and want to give back?

Recovery Hero: Laura!
My name is Laura, and I restarted my recovery journey on November 21, 2016. I have been clean and sober for nearly 4 years- which is still mind boggling to me when I think about it.
What have you accomplished that you’re most proud of during this time?
I don’t think I could narrow down this vast list of proud accomplishments.

Want to become a Coach?
A Peer Recovery Coach works to remove barriers and obstacles to recovery by serving as a personal guide. Recovery Coaches enter into an ongoing relationship that helps folks who are in recovery or who are considering recovery from substance use disorders to produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses, or organizations. Recovery Coaches are people in long term recovery.
