A Recovery Community Organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. These organizations organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and/or provide peer-based recovery support services (White, 2007).

A Recovery Community Center (RCC) is a place free from stigma that offers peer recovery support to the entire Recovery Community, regardless of pathway. Types of support fall within four categories: emotional, informational, instrumental, and affiliational. That means we have space to provide everything from Recovery Coaching & peer support groups to job readiness training & professional education to help with accessing social services & other basic needs (RCNC).

RCNC’s recovery initiatives are funded wholly or in part by the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, in conjunction with the North Carolina Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services.
