What We Do

The SERLC offers a variety of services and supports for wherever you are in your wellness journey.

Peer Support

Peer Supporters are people with lived experience who are willing to share their experience, strength, and hope with others.

 

Through empathetic listening, encouragement and sharing of lived experiences, Peer Supporters help others to cope with social or emotional barriers and to stay motivated to reach their own self-determined goals. 

 

Peer support can take on many forms – phone calls, text messaging, group meetings,home visits, going for walks together, and much more.

Peer support can be subtle or frequent, brief or ongoing, but it's always accessible and always flexible at the SERLC sites.

Peer-facilitated Support Groups

Each of the SERLC sites offers a variety of unique and creative groups on a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to:  navigating the mental healthcare system, recovery from substance use and addictive behaviors, cultivating self-care coping skills, and holding space for difficult emotions such as anger and grief.

We support each other in harm reduction groups, moving through trauma, and maintaining successful and loving relationships with our families of choice. We have some positive affirmation groups to cultivate a sense of gratitude and self awareness.​ We also facilitate Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA) meetings

 

We also offer more upbeat, fun groups such as art, crafts, journaling, music, karaoke, and game groups. We have yoga, mindfulness and meditation groups as well, to de-stress and find a sense of calm.

We have a diverse assortment of support groups, activities and events for Young Adults, BIPOC, Older Adults, and for those who identify as LGBTQIA2S+.

Our meetings are in-person, via Zoom, or hybrid depending on the group. 

 

In addition to the groups in our four centers, we also have in-person meetings out in the community.

Please click on the individual sites to see their full calendar and assortment of groups. ​

Consistent throughout all of our SERLC Recovery Connection Centers, is the use of a "Comfort Agreement", which is read at the beginning of each group. There may be variations at different SERLC sites, but they are strictly adhered to in order to ensure a safe, inclusive and trauma-informed healing environment for all.

Peer Bridging

Our Peer Recovery Bridgers support people in making a transition from an inpatient or carceral setting to connect with resources in their communities of choice.

Bridgers provide support in one's preferred environments and self-identified community to support their recovery goals and work to close any gaps and assist in any transitional issues that may arise when someone is leaving an inpatient facility and transitioning back home.

Some of the supports a Peer Bridger can help with:

  • Educating on and connecting to community services before and after discharge.

  • Serving as an advocate and ally.

  • Helping to foster independence.

  • Supporting a sense of inspiration, hope, and community.

Volunteer Opportunities

We offer many opportunities to get involved!

The Southeast Recovery Learning Community is entirely peer-run.
Most of our staff began their recovery journey as a volunteer member at one of our RCCs.

We love nothing more than to see a member of our community participate in their own wellness

and recovery and reach their goals through hard work and determination.

We are waiting for you to join us and enjoy recovery together!
