We are a place where recovery comes together.

We're working to help one another gain and sustain recovery, and build well-being in our community.

Our Goals

Connect

Through our volunteer program, community center, cafe, and events, we connect our community members with meaningful service work and with each other. We know that recovery is only possible when we are building it together.

Support

We offer peer recovery coaching services, as well as a career closet, computer lab, and resource boards on housing, employment, meetings and support groups, and other community resources. We know from lived experience that removing barriers to recovery is essential to sustained sobriety.

Educate

We offer workshops and trainings to empower our community members. We also work with state and local government to raise awareness about and advocate for what we need to ensure the sustainability of recovery in Texas.

Volunteer Program

Our volunteers are the heart of our organization. We truly believe that to keep your own sobriety, you must give back to others. Our volunteer program provides a wide variety of opportunities to people in recovery. From running meetings and coaching peers, both on and off-site, to helping run events and fundraisers, we have a place for you. Visit the Volunteer Program for more information.

Our centrally located community center (on the campus of Austin State Hospital) houses a career closet, computer lab, library, cafe, and community space. We offer free yoga, host weekly recovery meetings, and put on events that are open to everyone. Visit the Calendar to see what's going on this week!
