Recovery Resources of Atlanta - Midtown is a peer-led Addiction Recovery Support Center that provides FREE services to anyone seeking or already in recovery from substance use disorders.
WHAT IS AN RCO?
A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. RCOs organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and/or provide peer-based recovery support services.
The broadly defined recovery community--people in long-term recovery, their families, friends and allies, including recovery-focused addiction and recovery professionals--includes organizations whose members reflect religious, spiritual and secular pathways of recovery. The sole mission of an RCO is to mobilize resources within and outside of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from substance use disorders.

FOUR CRITICAL DOMAINS FOR RECOVERY MANAGEMENT
Having a safe and stable place to live.Although we do not provide housing on location we do have a growing list of local and state resources that can meet anyone's needs.
Conducting meaningful daily activities such as a job, volunteering, school, family care taking, or creative endeavors. and the independence, income, and resources to participate in. We have weekly check-ins to address individual needs, and programs/workshops that will help to highlight and identify our peers purpose.
Having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love and support.We build community by providing socially supportive activities, volunteer opportunities, recreational activities, and a supportive recovery- oriented atmosphere.
Overcoming one's disease(s) or symptoms. For example, abstaining from using alcohol, illicit drugs, and non-prescribed medications, if one has an addiction problem; and for anyone in recovery making informed, healthy choices.Recovery and self care comes first, and this is addressed through groups and social support activities. We also partner with testing and clinical services.
