Peer-Led Recovery Organizations
Participation in a peer-led organization, such as Young People in Recovery (YPR) or Friends of Recovery-New York (FOR-NY), can have a tremendous impact on an individual’s recovery as well. Leaders and members are in recovery themselves and are familiar with the challenges unique to substance use disorder. They are often focused on educating the community about substance use disorder and recovery, promoting local resources, and advancing public policy to help reduce the stigma of recovery and increase access to substance use treatment and support services. Some peer-led recovery organizations within the area include:
- Hudson Valley Young People in AA – HVYPAA is a service committee of young people in AA. HVYPAA hosts events to show that you can have fun in sobriety and recover from your addiction successfully. HVYPAA’s mission is to spread the message of hope, recovery, and unity to alcoholics throughout the region. HVYPAA’s members learn and grow in their recovery through their involvement in service.
- Friends of Recovery – NY (FOR- NY) – A peer-led recovery group comprised of NYS residents who are in long-term recovery from addiction, as well as their families, friends and allies. They represent all sectors of the community, all regions of the state, and the numerous and diverse paths to recovery. Their mission is to demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addictions and its value to individuals, families and communities throughout NYS and the nation. FOR-NY actively seeks to advance public policies and practices that promote and support recovery.
- Columbia County Pathways to Recovery – CCPR is an RCO (Recovery Community Organization), a grassroots group which grew out of the concern for a need for awareness, education, advocacy, and a change in perception regarding the public health crisis of addiction. CCPR is made up of individuals who are in recovery from addiction, families and friends impacted by addiction, families who have lost a loved one to addiction, and friends and allies in the larger Columbia County community, including professionals, concerned community members, educators, medical and mental health specialists, community leaders, clergy, law enforcement, emergency rescue personnel, and addiction and recovery specialists, who have all joined together to solve our common problem around this public health crisis.
In addition to recovery centers, there are other resources that help support an individual’s recovery, such as support/self-help groups. These self-help groups can be an invaluable source of guidance, assistance, and encouragement. Groups are very helpful, not only to help an individual maintain sobriety, but also to act as a safe place to get support and discuss challenges. Connecting with others who know first-hand what you’re going through can help reduce feelings of isolation, fear, and hopelessness. Staying motivated and positive is much easier when you have others you can turn to and lean on to help you get through tough times.
- Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) – Founded in 1935 by Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith based around the Twelve-Step program as a means of recovering from alcoholism. This spiritual mutual aid group involves receiving help from the AA community, as well as from individual “sponsors”, advisors who have also been through the Twelve-Step program who can help each new member successfully navigate through life. AA is the largest of all the Twelve-Step programs (from which all other Twelve-Step programs are derived); most twelve-step members are recovering from addiction to alcohol or other drugs.
- Narcotics Anonymous (NA) – Founded in 1953, Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs have become a major problem. NA meetings are comprised of those with an addiction to drugs who share their experiences and struggles in dealing with addiction and recovery. Much like AA, the guiding principles of NA are rooted in the Twelve-Step program, the guiding relationships of “sponsors” for newer members, and the Twelve Traditions that dictate how each member of the group can assist one another and regain control of their lives.
