Our Mission Continued...
To fulfill the mission of Recovery Connections of Central Florida, our goal is to develop and operate a website dedicated to providing an online database of recovery resources for Brevard, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties. The website will allow individuals and families to search for recovery resources available in the four county area. The resources encompass three overarching areas: support, treatment, and education available to those who are seeking recovery, sustaining recovery, concerned about a loved one or wanting to support the recovery movement.
Future plans for Recovery Connections of Central Florida include expanding to offer telephonic support though a team of Certified Recovery Peer Specialists as well as adding local Recovery Community Centers in each of the counties served. These centers will allow for individuals to meet face to face with the Recovery Coaches and Certified Peer Support Specialists to establish and cultivate relationships offering support in their recovery journey as well as gain access to technology and develop life skills.
Together we CAN recover!
