It was a full house at the Soho Playhouse in Manhattan when members, staff and volunteers from the Bronx Community Recovery Center and Brooklyn Community Recovery Center joined up to attend a performance of “Bill W. and Dr. Bob,” the acclaimed play about the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous. Discussion time with the playwrights, Sam Shem, and author Kevin Griffin about the 12 Step recovery path was an extra added treat for our attendees for a rousing Q&A session. It was an amazing show, with subject matter close to everyone’s hearts; we heartily endorse sober recreation outlets with a message.
The Bronx Community Recovery Center (BCRC) and the Brooklyn Community Recovery Center (BKCRC) are peer-driven recovery support centers, serving the Bronx, Bedford-Stuyvesant and central Brooklyn areas, created in collaboration with state and local community-based organizations. We welcome men and women, ages 18 and over, seeking recovery, with all services free of charge. We facilitate referrals and provide resources to community supports assisting in recovery from alcohol and substance misuse. Our goal is to inspire and empower our members with the recovery capital necessary to become healthy, purposeful and successful members of the community, enjoying the rewards of substance-free lives. We are committed to encouraging health and wellness activities, as well as helping members enhance their job readiness skills. Seminars promoting substance abuse prevention, education, exercise, and counseling are available at the Centers. At both Centers, we have created a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) network, a community-based project through which peer volunteers and clinicians respond to the needs of men and women in recovery, accomplished with meetings and educational outreach.
Every day, our Recovery Centers help support individuals in recovery. If you or a loved one needs help, Phoenix House is here for you. Call us today at 1 888 671 9392.
