Please stay tuned to our social media and website for updates.  

No Appointment or application needed.

The Sunrise Drop-In Community Center is the hub, heart and hands of our organization. It is run by our staff of Certified Peer Support Specialists who provide authentic, non-judgemental support who can connect you to our robust resource pipeline, or just offer a listening ear.  

Join us in a safe, judgement-free space just as you are. At our center, individuals from all walks of life can get a cup of coffee and snacks, relieve loneliness, join a recovery support group, talk to a Certified Peer Support Specialist, get connected to community resources, attend trainings or just chill with a community of peers.

Recovery Community Centers (RCCs) such as Sunrise’s Drop-In Center, are a new and effective way to increase recovery capital (connection to resources) for our peers who visit the center. A recent study by the Recovery Research Institute shows that RCCs fill gaps in psychosocial recovery needs not addressed by traditional forms of recovery support, helps increase overall wellbeing, self-esteem and quality of life while decreasing psychological distress levels.
