Though not solely 12 step based, we support our clients in attending outside AA and NA meetings, additional support groups, and provide transportation as needed.  As a team, we encourage new opportunities in your lasting sobriety, and these are just a few of the possibilities available to you.

I noticed your facility addresses LGBT specific topics however, I do not identify as LGBT or would I want to attend groups targeted specifically to the LGBT community so does this mean I should look for another facility?

Recovery Corps is certainly LGBT friendly but we welcome everyone who is needing help with substance/alcohol abuse. Being as small of a facility that we are (seven beds) we have the ability to tailor your specific needs to your treatment. Meaning if you are not part of the LGBT community you will be offered the opportunity to attend these groups but would not be required to do so. With that being said, Recovery Corps is a very diverse facility and will not tolerate racial or sexual discrimination of any kind. We want everyone regardless of cultural, racial, religious or sexual differences to feel safe and focus on the one thing they need to and that is RECOVERY.
