Take the Gratitude Quiz
Grateful people are happy people, research shows. But how grateful are you? To find out—and discover steps for promoting even more gratitude in your life—take this quiz, which is based on a scale developed by psychologists Mitchel Adler and Nancy Fagley.

We are creating a recovery friendly community, one person at a time
Because of your support, SRC now has over 2,000 supporters including coaches, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Thank you Colorado Springs!

The Springs Recovery Connection Peer-to-Peer Recovery Coach Model is based upon the belief that coaching is about freedom, support, the future, and a fresh perspective. We understand that recovery is often about past struggles and old stories. SRC combines Peer-to-Peer Coaching and Recovery to create a conversation around possibilities. 

Recovery Hero: Ashley Crockett
Our Recovery Hero of the week,  Ashley Crockett !
My name is Ashley Crockett and I have been in recovery for twenty-nine years. One day I awakened in the midst of wreckage caused my substance abuse;I felt I couldn’t go on the way I was living and I wanted to die. It was my birthday. When the irony of that moment dawned on me, I made the choice to recover my life.

What is CRAFT?
CRAFT teaches family members to do the following:

  • Identify their loved one’s triggers for and results of their use.
  • Break the patterns that lead to or increase a loved one’s drinking or using.
  • Develop and improve communication skills to more effectively express their needs and requests.
  • Help their loved one access effective addiction treatment resources when he/she expresses interest in treatment.
  • Learn or re-learn how to take care of themselves and reconnect with their values, so that regardless of their loved one’s use, they can still lead a life that is centered on their values and not their loved one’s drug/alcohol use.
  • If violence or the potential for violence exists, help family members identify triggers for violence and develop plans to keep themselves (and their children) safe.

What are the goals of a Recovery Coach? (Does this sound like you?)
  • Promote Recovery
  • Remove Barriers
  • Connect People with Resources
  • Encourage hope, optimism and healthy living.
