SOS Recovery Community Organization is a collaborative of peers in recovery from addiction and their allies working together to create safe spaces and peer-based recovery supports throughout Strafford County, New Hampshire. SOS and its Recovery Community Centers exist to bolster and grow the local recovery community through Recovery Coaching, diverse meetings and workshops that support all pathways to recovery, organized advocacy, partnerships with diverse community organizations, and volunteerism.

Our Mission

The mission of SOS Recovery Community Organization is to reduce stigma and harm associated with addictive disorders by providing safe space and peer-based supports for people in all stages of recovery.

Our Vision

SOS Recovery Community envisions a world where recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs is possible and widely embraced through low-barrier access to inclusive and respectful support, and where all who seek long-term recovery have access to the care and resources they need to achieve their self-defined goals.

Peer-Based Recovery Support

Available at our Recovery Community Centers

What is a Recovery Coach?

A Recovery Coach can be anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery. Our main staff and volunteer base is composed of Recovery Coaches who have completed the 30-hour CCAR Recovery Coach Academy, 14-hour CCAR Ethical Considerations for Recovery Coaches course, have been vetted by the recovery community and the Goodwin Community Health volunteer screening process, and adhere to ethical guidelines of both SOS and Goodwin.

What do Recovery Coaches do?

Our Coaches help people navigate a life of recovery from addiction regardless of a chosen recovery pathway. We are resource brokers, confidants, role models, and collaborators on solutions to difficulties that people face in addiction and recovery. Activity between the Coach and 'Recoveree' is centered around a Personal Recovery Plan developed and kept by the 'Recoveree.' We promote recovery that is self-directed, individualized and person-centered, holistic, strengths-based, and anchored by the principles of respect, responsibility, hope, and service.
