RCR’s mission is to acknowledge the role of oppression based on identity and its effect on addiction and mental health. By increasing accessibility of trauma-informed care through evidence-based practice, we aim to cater our program to those who have historically been under-resourced in these areas of healthcare. Our mandate is to cultivate a life-long relationship of positive support and community involvement with each of our clients.
Inspired by the Greek word, regenesis, meaning renewal or rebirth, we plan to stay true to our name and provide clients at RCR the fresh start that they deserve. Trauma-informed care, compassion, culture, and a supportive community are at the heart of our work, while individualized care and evidence-based practice strongly influences our therapeutic values.
We are a nonprofit live-in recovery facility governed by an active volunteer board of directors. Our vision is to provide care based on four unique pillars:
