The Peer Recovery Center
The Peer Recovery Center originally started at Brandywine Counseling Center in the basement while our center’s construction was still under way. We opened our services on January 3, 2019.
Once construction was completed, we opened our doors. With our grand opening, we were in full swing on June 21, 2019. As of July 11, 2022, we are happy to say we have served 1,459 participants.
We offer a wide variety of services and resources available to all in our community and beyond. We start each day with hot coffee and breakfast for everyone, followed by lunch and dessert later on.
We have clothing closets and can submit clothing order requests for participants through Friendship House Clothing Bank. We have a resource room for processing important documentation, applications, resumes, and more; we offer lockers to store important items for the participants, a public phone for participant use and convenience, laundry services and detergent, handicapped accessible showers, and hygiene products for both men and women. We have everything from towels, washcloths, soap, deodorant, tooth brushes, toothpaste, lotion, body wash, and more.
We offer food and hygiene bags for emergency purposes, and a tv room to charge devices with free Wi-Fi. Participants can relax from the stresses of everyday routine. Participants can receive mail and we can apply for bus passes for those in need.
We run groups and activities Monday through Friday. Groups include Recovery, Life Skills, Coping Skills, Meditation, WRAP group, Art Classes, and Narcan Training.
We have a nutritionist that comes in monthly to connect with clients and helps to create healthy eating habits based on each individual’s own unique circumstances and lifestyle.
We also have HIV consortium come in monthly to provide testing and counseling.
We have many resources available to anyone from our local community and statewide as well.
Through The Harvest Program, we have been connected to two Wawa locations and Chick-Fil-A; they offer food donations that we pick up throughout each and every week of the year. We have also established food donations from The Well, and have been blessed with food, necessities, and supplies from many individuals, including Ma Van, The Journey Church, Helping Hands, Food Bank of DE, and more.
We also give back to our community through weekly outreach by giving bag lunches and emergency totes. We also volunteer our time to help other agencies with events.
We also host events for our participants and Horizon House staff, including BBQ’s, holiday events, and luncheons.
