Stairway to Recovery Center
A program of the Gandara Mental Health Center, the Stairway to Recovery Center provides services to individuals in all phases of recovery from alcohol and/or drug abuse, including those who have not yet engaged in recovery, individuals who have relapsed, individuals in Methadone programs, and individuals in recovery. The Center also includes activities that engage family members. The Recovery Center serves the larger communities from which the members come including the Latino, African American, Haitian, Cape Verdean, Portuguese, and Brazilian communities. The Center also serves ex-offenders, women, immigrants and elders through activities that meet the unique needs of these populations.
Based in Brockton, MA, the Stairway to Recovery Center is a supportive beacon of light within the recovery community of Southeastern Massachusetts. The center is a place that promotes and exemplifies hope for people in recovery, where peers are engaged in many aspects of recovery to gain the resources, skills and practical knowledge to improve their quality of life. Recovering peers are encouraged to get involved and bring ideas and suggestions that support the values of recovery. The Stairway to Recovery Center provides a safe and supportive atmosphere to improve and enhance development, helping one another as peers. We all have something to offer to the center as well as recovery as a whole, and here at the center opportunity to do so is given.
