ABOUT

Why do you come to group?

With the needs of transitional aged youth who face mental health and substance use disorder/challenges, and the lack of youth-directed peer support and recovery groups, Resiliency 4 Recovery began. In May 2012, five youth were brought together at a local non-profit organization to initiate their own support group based on their emerging adult needs. Using the evidence based Resiliency Theory; the youth were guided through a variety of brainstorming activities with the goal of developing an age specific group, by- youth-for-youth, to meet their recovery needs. Resiliency is the ability to bounce back from adversity even stronger.  Relying on this model, the once marginalized youth came together to form a recovery community. “In helping others we help ourselves”

The group’s overarching mission since its inception is, “to find ways to improve the lives of young adults, and their allies in our community through recovery, life skills, and resiliency building in an inclusive, safe and stigma-free environment”. The group has met consistently each week as not just the recipients, but also the givers of support. In addition, to weekly meetings the group has expanded to provide members with positive sober activities as well as community engagement opportunities that enhances their foundation of recovery and builds on their life skills. See table 1 for examples of life skill building and recovery-focused events.

In August 2018, the group started meeting at 1108 Speers Road in Oakville.  Contact information is provided below.  Come and see us if you are looking for peer support or information.

Thanks to R4R, I have tried so many things that I never thought I would.  I have canoed, played laser tag, tried archery, grew a vegetable garden, taken cooking classes, participated in a drumming circle, planned community events, helped others in their recovery and so much more.  I love how close and personal this group is.  It is clear that everyone cares about eachother!

R4R is like no other group or meeting that I have ever attended. It has quickly become a very important part of my weekly routine that I am constantly looking forward to and never want to miss. Coming to group each week always feels very comfortable and welcoming. It is a unique and healthy environment where I meet genuine friends who have my best interest in mind. It has allowed me to build on life skills and strengthen the foundation of my recovery. R4R gives me a sense of responsibility and purpose. Helping others helps me and vice versa. Since I joined this group, many things have changed for the better in my life. I have R4R to thank for my boost in confidence, motivation, self-esteem and solid, long lasting recovery.
