The Palmer Drug Abuse Program had big dreams. PDAP wanted to be able to reach more people, in more places, and in more ways. In 2013, PDAP rebranded to Rise Recovery to allow for more amazing programs. That dream came true in 2015 when Rise Recovery opened its doors to the Youth Recovery Community Center (YRCC). The truly unique YRCC works directly with youth and young adults, ages 13 – 21, with substance use disorder and reaches out to the community to educate everyone on substance use disorder and recovery.
The YRCC partners closely with the PDAP Younger and Colliegate Group, to allow participants to achieve the best possible outcomes for their lives.
The YRCC offers youth and young adults
Peer Counseling with our peer counselors who are in recovery themselves. Couple their experience with professional education they can help you or your loved one identify issues pertaining to substance use, and work to identify and solve common problems.
Support Groups that are facilitated by a peer counselor. The participants meet in a group format to share their experiences, which strengthens the relationships within the group and provides an environment that encourages vulnerability and honesty.
Social Activites that show it is possible to have fun without getting high. Participation is important as they afford you or your loved the opportunity to relax and laugh, which is crucial to healing individually and as a family.
Education and Employment Support for issues surrounding education and employment. This include; resume building, homework help, application support, guidance and resources, and referrals to other agencies.
Community Service Projects for our youth and young adults to give back to the community. Past projects have included a community garden, volunteering at animal shelters, and working community events.
The YRCC offers the community
Health and Wellness Events that are open to the public to educate on substance use and recovery. Our events include health fairs, educational events, and seminars.
