RCO MISSION STATMENT
Encourage, motivate and inspire individuals to do more than survive.
We are here to help build up a recovery community that thrives by:
- Using evidence-based practices to provide peer-supported programs and a place to connect,
- Building a forum for service work,
- Developing peer supportive recovery housing,
- Providing opportunities to build trusting relationships
- And bridging the gap between people and services by making connections with partners within our community.
PEER RECOVERY SUPPORT CENTER:
Our Recovery Community Center provides a Computer Lab, Give it Forward Closet, Recovery Café, Meditation Room, Peer Recovery Coaches, Volunteer Opportunities, Educational Workshops, Secular & Spiritual based Recovery Groups.
At Thriving United, we understand that everyone’s journey is unique, which is why we support all paths to recovery. We offer a broad spectrum of recovery support groups.
A life in long-term recovery encompasses many dimensions of personal wellness and at Thriving United we believe in:
- Providing a venue for workshops
- Providing resources to foster whole-person recovery for our community.
Volunteering is the heart of who we are at and the avenue through which peers can give the message of recovery to others seeking it and, in doing so, keep their own recovery. We provide our volunteers with a variety of opportunities to give back and serve others in our community.
Youth is a part of our recovery community that is in great need. Thriving United is initiating a program to address youth needs and facilitate sustainable recovery and health.
Our proudest accomplishment is our peer supportive housing program called Angel Haven. Our first home is one specifically tailored to recovering women and their children. We are proud of how well the family works together to support, encourage and function as a healthy family. The home is based on the NARR Standards. What we have seen has been just beautiful to watch as the women, children and community truly thrive together!
We are looking forward to opening our next Angel Haven location that will be open to all persons in recovery, whether they are a small family, single, single mom or a single dad. We look forward to implementing the same recovery standards and traditions to unite others as a family system that really thrive together!
THRIVING UNITED RECOVERY COMMUNITY CENTER
Thriving United leased office space in a building across the street from the Midland County Courthouse. This provides a great location for central accessibility, visibility, and access for new peers. Space is provided for Peer Recovery Support in a pleasant environment. It is being used immediately, providing a connection for volunteers. It is kid-friendly and supports a family feel and convenience for parents.
SPONSORSHIP FOR TREATMENT AND COUNSELING
Through donations, we sent eight adults to intensive one-week residential treatment and thirteen adults to full-term residential treatment. We sent one teenager to extended residential treatment. Twenty individuals were afforded the opportunity to receive ongoing individual therapeutic counseling. Thriving United is blessed to be a part of helping people get the help they need. We can help the community put both their talents and their dollars to an effective service.
The meditation room is tranquil and peaceful. The recovery center is a positive resource and a safe space for my needs on my journey to live a sober and healthy life. – Clay H.
It’s been a great time working and volunteering at the Center. It’s been an opportunity to work with others, and to grow thereby. I really appreciate having Pat, Jenn, Garrett, Kristi, and others to interact with. They have been hospitable, kind, and encouraging especially during this time of the coronavirus! – Tim S.
