"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
We believe in finding wellness by raising the bar higher.
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”
We believe in living recovery in our community.
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.
