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
Zoom Fatigue is Real
For many of us, working from home during COVID-19 has meant we are spending a lot of time on video meeting applications like Zoom. The effects of this have taken us by surprise.
Having giant heads staring at us up close for long periods can be off-putting for a lot of us. Never mind that we feel we should fix our hair (COVID mullet anyone?), put on makeup, or get out of our pajamas.

Mindfulness in Recovery
Mindfulness in Recovery’s primary mission is to provide our members with skills, activities and a supportive community to cultivate mindfulness in their daily lives, empowering them to make healthy choices in alignment with their personal values and beliefs so they can live meaningful lives in recovery.

Springs Recovery Connection offers a weekly Zoom Mindfulness in Recovery Meeting on Fridays at 3pm

Recovery Hero: Bonnie Scott
Hello, my name is Bonnie Scott and I have been clean and sober for 1 year and 2 months. Since being in recovery, I have gotten my life back. This has included receiving full custody of my daughter back in March of this year. My lowest point in addiction was when I heard my dealer tell someone: "Just give Bonnie drugs and she'll do whatever you ask." This showed me that I was no longer considered a person. I had become a 'junkie' for the drug of my choice. As of now I am currently volunteering and training at Springs Recovery Connection to become a Peer Recovery Coach..

Night of Remembrance and Hope
The Tri-County Overdose Prevention Partnership is hosting a virtual Night of Remembrance and Hope on International Overdose Awareness Day, August 31, 2020 from 6:30pm to 8pm. This event will showcase creative works submitted by individuals who have been impacted by substance misuse and overdose either through personal experience or that of a loved one. 

Be the Life Ring in Someone's Life
You can be the life ring, the support for them.
Your support goes towards programs that help people make the journey to long term recovery.
Will you help us with this work?
