Our Vision
Our Mission
Frederick County will be a place where all can select their own recovery path and are supported in their choices.

We provide free intentional and inclusive peer-led recovery and wellness services. By creating an accepting, supportive community we educate and empower people to heal, reconnect, and find their own way forward. We strive to passionately serve any adult who is seeking to recover from significant life challenges, mental health issues or substance use disorder.
