Springs Recovery Connection Mission
To strengthen the recovery community through peer and family support, public education and advocacy.
Peer recovery programs are an integral part of addiction treatment, recovery
It’s evident that something has to change, and peer recovery programs are an important part of that change. Created to holistically serve patients, these programs combine personalized peer support and medical treatment to address substance use disorders. The peer recovery specialists who staff these programs are individuals who have personally experienced addiction and who have been in recovery for four years or more. They have been where their patients are, and have felt what they are feeling.

Help us end the stigma
Peer support works. Recent studies have shown the peer-delivered support is associated with improvement in recovery outcomes.

When peers support peers, remission from this disease is possible. Help us to provide support to people who need help.

Recovery Hero: Justin Miller
My name is Justin and I have been in recovery for almost 11 months.
Since I made the decision to be clean I have successfully closed a DHS case, have been given full custody of my baby girl, and have rebuilt my relationship with my family.
At the lowest point of my addiction I had settled for a life on the streets and thought I’d be a junkie until the day I die. I had turned my back on my children and had convinced myself that they were better off without me.

How to Decline a Holiday Cocktail
The holidays will no doubt look a bit different this year, thanks to social distancing. This said, you will, at some point, likely find yourself around some holiday cocktails in December if you are having a small, safe meet-up with friends or family or even if you’re meeting virtually. Thankfully, this doesn’t need to be a stressful event that may derail your sobriety.
