Peer Run Recovery Groups
Together Place offers recovery groups for those in recovery from substance use or mental health issues (often both). All groups are led by Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialists (CIPSS) who have their own lived experience of mental health and/or substance use challenges and are on their own chosen path of recovery. They build empowering connections with group members and offer first-hand experience and encouragement that long-term recovery is possible.
Together Place offers one-on-one support with Certified Intentional Peer Support Specialists (CIPSS).
Creative Recovery Initiative
Recognizing the vast potential to foster stronger long-term recovery, Together Place developed the Creative Recovery Initiative comprised of Creative & Vocational Recovery Groups.
Creative and Vocational Recovery Groups are co-facilitated by a Together Place CIPSS and a community member with expertise relevant to the group’s theme such as creative writing, painting, or vocational skill-building.
