We are #RecoveryCenterStrong

 

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.​

The PIER Recovery Community Center is located in beautiful downtown Newport, Kentucky. Just a few minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, we attract people in recovery from both sides of the river. The center has been around since 2012, providing hope, education, and support for those living with a substance use disorder. The PIER is a community-based, peer operated, non-clinical setting that is safe, welcoming, and alcohol/substance-free for any member of the community. The center promotes long-term recovery.  We work with all sorts of folks. Substance use disorder and mental illness can affect anyone. Addiction has no boundaries. It crosses every age, gender, race, and income. We provide services to men, women, and non-binary people ages 18 and over.  People at every economic level seek out our programs and services. Our program also serves as a one-stop-shop for people in recovery. You can find services and resources for employment, re-entry, wrap-around services, LGBTQ+, housing, etc. Many people find support and encouragement through our support groups. We currently offer over 12 weekly online support groups for those living with substance use disorders.

The Recovery Center is a peer-run program, operating all its programs and services with Certified Peer Support Specialists on staff. They are people in recovery working with people in recovery. All of their support specialists have completed the 40-hour training through Mental Health America to become certified as a peer support specialist. Certified peers don't just help individuals navigate the challenges to finding recovery, but they also focus on recovery management and life skills such as helping people repair and rebuild their life from health to finances, to relationships to spirituality.
