Staff and peer leaders are available to help guide members with any barriers to their recovery and wellness. Peers,
individuals who've experienced substance use disorder and recovery directly or indirectly, provide support services for
adults at varying stages of recovery, family members, and friends and allies in Marlborough and surrounding towns.
Our center provides a safe, welcoming place where various activities and member-driven services are planned and implemented by peers. Services are intended to help those affected by substance use disorder lead valued and fulfilled lives, free from all forms of addiction. Activities evolve based on the needs, interests and preferences of our members.
We hope to increase our presence in the community in a positive and collaborative way. If you're a community organization interested in partnering with us, please reach out! We're privileged to currently partner with the Addiction Referral Center (ARC), Employment Options, the Marlborough Alliance for Prevention, and Cosmix.
Membership is free! To inquire about becoming a member or volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the center at 508.485.0298 to set up a time to take a tour. Or stop by at your convenience during our operating hours!
Peer-driven programs are uniquely positioned to help individuals affected by substance use disorder become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Services at The Recovery Connection are designed and delivered by people who have experienced substance use disorder and recovery - either first-hand or through a loved one - and, by being successful in their own recovery process, are able to share a powerful message of hope and experiential knowledge. In addition, TRC utilizes a combination of different social supports, such emotional, informational, instrumental and affiliated. As an example, our peer specialists won't just refer a member to a job posting, they'll also provide emotional support, like interview coaching, as well as instrumental assistance, like sealing a CORI record. The more well-rounded an approach is in addressing a roadblock, the more likely that the individual facing that roadblock will walk away with a sense of autonomy, accomplishment and confidence, things that are so often lacking before finding recovery.
