Opening Doors to Recovery...Every Day
What we offer...
We believe in community-driven programming. Participants are encouraged to suggest new programming or services that would benefit their recovery, fostering peer leadership development.
Peers Helping Peers
Our staff, facilitators, and participants share their experiences with substance abuse, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. Help and support are rooted in lived experience, promoting friendly, non-demanding interactions.
We are committed to including peer leaders in our programs. Our peer leadership development track empowers participants to give back by assisting with peer activities at the center. They can receive training and become peer employees, continuing to develop their leadership skills.
Cultural Diversity and Inclusion
Located just north of Downtown St. Louis, we welcome a culturally diverse population. We understand that recovery is a personal journey, and what works for one may not work for another. Our programs offer a space for individuals to share their recovery experiences, allowing others to choose the path that works best for them.
Our Commitment to Equality
The St. Louis Empowerment Center is dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, military status, or any other characteristic in any aspect of our operations.
As an equal opportunity employer, we maintain a discrimination-free workplace and take affirmative action measures to ensure fairness in employment. Harassment is strictly prohibited, and all employees, including supervisors and management, are expected to uphold this policy. Reporting unlawful harassment will not have adverse effects on employment.
