The Anchor Recovery Community Centres

rsz_kennedy-anchor-visit‘I think that stigma will most likely be changed when the community sees us acting differently, in the community as people in recovery. Contributing to the community, you know… blood drive or cleanup. Citizenship.

I say to folks all the time, “By our silence, we let other people define us.”‘

I just love this video clip from ManyFaces1Voice, so much energy in it. And I’m really impressed by the look and feel of The Anchor Recovery Community that is shown. 

RICARES is a grassroots alliance of people in recovery, their family and friends that advocates for and improves the public perception and supports available for people in recovery from substance use disorders. The Anchor Recovery Community Centers were developed with support from The Providence Center as a result of RICARES advocacy. The first is in Pawtucket and the second in Warwick, in partnership with the YMCA.
