Knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of hope.

Volunteer Profile: Cindy Hilton on "MY MEANINGFUL LIFE"

"I always felt as though I never fit in or was truly loved. I ran away at the age of 14 and continued running until the age of 48, always trying to escape myself. My life became a long, lonely road of self-destruction...On January 14, 2014, I ended up in yet another psychiatric facility. Broken, Rays of Hope desperate, and suicidal, I still felt blessed for a moment of clarity: acceptance set in that I was the problem. I was graced with the willingness to change... The process of working on me had finally begun." 

The Council and PRO-ACT are honored to present to you Ms. Cindy Hilton, June's Volunteer of the Month at the Southern Bucks Recovery Community Center in Bristol, PA. Read more of Cindy's Story.
Bundle of Services Provided To Sustain Long-Term Recovery

Long-term recovery involves much more than simply "not using." Many who struggle with substance use disorder also struggle with housing, education, employment, life skills, mental health issues and more. As explained in this recent SAMHSA Report, overcoming these challenges road to rec requires a bundle of supports and services. 

The Council's Recovery Community Centers fulfill this role, offering a tremendous array of recovery support services. At our Centers, individuals and families can meet with Certified Recovery Specialists and PRO-ACT's Ambassadors for Recovery. There are also many workshops and support groups including Gateway To Work; Family Education; Recovery Toolkit; Morning Devotions; YOGA; Stress Management; Self-Esteem and more. To join a Center's mailing list, volunteer for PRO-ACT or learn details, contact a Recovery Center directly.
