STLEC Recovery Community Center

St. Louis Empowerment Center is proud to announce the establishment of a Recovery Community Center (RCC). Individuals participating in the RCC will develop skills and competencies through mutual support with their peers, working with Certified Peer Specialists, participating in support groups, educational programs, and social skills building activities. As part of SAMSHSA’s Opioid State Targeted Response Grant, Empowerment Center RCC will work with individuals with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD) to develop Recovery plans and pathways.

STLEC Recovery Community Center will be partnering with several organizations (including but not limited to: Missouri Recovery Network, Let’s Start, Behavioral Health Networks EPICC Program, etc.) to offer individuals with an identified OUD recovery in an open, honest, and peer-based environment.
