The mission statement of Foundations may seem simple “To support recovery through peer support, education, and advocacy and networking.” But to those in recovery it means so much more. “Recovery” is the key word. This word has personal significance for every individual of feeling better about oneself realizing potential, and working toward a better tomorrow.

Working through recovery is a goal at Foundations. We provide peers with information about their illness through structured classes taught by trained peers, and through social events. We strive to empower everyone who walks through Foundations door through education, support groups, and one on one peer support.

Peers have a special lens to look at their own recovery. They have a unique, compassionate insight to share.  Other peers in recovery can learn from the ones who are well on the path of their own recovery journey. Our goal is to help people achieve their own highest level of recovery and to maintain it.

Our hopes are that you utilize our website and refer to it often. Use it to discover classes and support groups that fit your needs. This website does not contain all of the classes and support groups that we offer as we have too many to list. But please use the site as a tool, then join us in
wellness and recovery!

What is Peer Support?
Peer Services are a process of giving and receiving support and education from individuals with shared life experiences. Peer Services are provided by individuals in recovery from mental illness and/or addiction who use their lived experience as a tool to assist others by sharing their personal journeys and knowledge. Individuals engaged in peer services play a vital role in laying the foundation for sustained recovery. They encourage, inspire and empower others to set recovery goals and achieve them.
