Who We Are

We are a community based peer organization.

Our values, much of our governance, our strategic direction, our programming and everything about SOS Recovery Community Organization is driven by the community and those we serve.  We are made up of a small staff who are here to provide the framework and structure for our community to drive our programs, services and offerings.

We Are An RCO with a
Capital C.

We Are An RCO with a Capital C.

Our services are primarily driven and run by volunteers who are made up of individuals in recovery, family members, friends and loved ones of those in recovery, or those who may be still struggling with substance misuse, as well as allies in the community.  Much like recovery we are a diverse group with empathy, compassion and a deep passion for all that we are doing to provide a safe supportive environment for those impacted by substance misuse.  We have learned that those struggling with substance misuse are our parents, our brothers, our sisters, friends, neighbors and co-workers and, likewise, the recovery community is represented by all of those at SOS Recovery Community Organization.

We Measure Our Success In Impact.

Telephone Recovery Support

SOS provides Telephone Recovery Support Service (TRSS) calls to area residents that are in recovery from alcohol or other addictions as well as family members and loved ones of those who have struggled with substance misuse. TRSS is an innovative, peer-to-peer support service. Trained volunteers that are, in many cases, in recovery themselves, make weekly calls to “check in” and see how people are doing. Individuals and family members, or loved ones, are offered support; encouragement and information about resources that may help them maintain their recovery.

Phone calls are made on a weekly basis between the hours of 9am and 6pm (Monday-Friday)
