Peer Recovery

Finding My Recovery is a positive, strengths-focused website to support people in recovery from addiction and co-occurring disorders. The website provides self-help support groups and chat rooms facilitated and monitored by recovery coaches. The site offers resources and educational materials on a variety of issues related to addiction and co-occurring disorders offers hope for recovery through a variety of peer support opportunities including developing a personal profile, posting updates, blogs, affirmations recovery chats and private messaging. The live, real time chat rooms are an invaluable resource and   provide a place to share positive feedback through the experiences, strength and hope of others in recovery.  Chat rooms also hold real time, all inclusive recovery meetings which focus on co-occurring issues as well as substance abuse. The therapeutic value of one recovering individual assisting another is one of our greatest attributes. findingMyRecovery is a nontraditional recovery support program and is not meant to “replace” one type of recovery for the other, but is intended to be a supplement for many that are unable to find recovery in traditional methods or mediums.


Peer Support Centers

Peer support can be one of the most significant tools a person can use on their journey to recovery.

The VBH Peer Support  Centers utilize a peer to peer best-practice model that supports people who have been diagnosed with mental illness. The centers utilize Peer Support Specialists, mental health consumers themselves, who recognize that people are capable of solving most of their own problems of daily living. The Peer Support Specialist focuses on wellness and recovery rather than on illness and disability as peers share with one another their experiences, their strengths, and their hope – a powerful combination for recovery.
