Listening Session

As your Recovery Community Organization, Sunrise Community for Recovery and Wellness wants to hear from you about what’s important to you in building an even stronger recovery community here in WNC!

How do you define the recovery community? What do you value in recovery community? What are your ideas about ways that the recovery community can reach more of the folks who might be struggling in our communities? 

This is the first of a series of listening sessions that we are organizing and we need your input on what you see as priorities in the recovery community and your vision of ways that we can all work together to carry out the Sunrise mission to empower individuals and the community to manage and overcome substance use and mental health challenges.  Please plan on attending and invite those in your recovery community networks to be a part of this important conversation! 

If you have questions or would like additional information on how you can get involved in helping Sunrise to support our amazing recovery community, please reach out to Justin Wright at or stop by the Recovery Community Center!
