Our Community of Recovery
Recovery happens in community. While peers must be unique and indispensable role — providers, family, friends and other allies are also essential to building a community of recovery.

Yet, Casa is not just committed to strengthening the community on Eustis Street. The culture of Recovery goes beyond Casa and represents a way of seeing the world through different eyes.

Through our Alumni Association, graduates plan activities, learn new skills and mentor individuals new to recovery. Many of them return to support our annual Graduation along with other members of the Recovery Community. Our Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) is one way we play a role in the larger picture of the Recovery Community.

We recognize that many people cannot go home again, that family can be a trigger for using, and that some friends and neighborhoods must be left behind for an addict to stay safe and sober. That’s why we are always working towards strengthening our larger family — Our Recovery Community. Through the development of a continuum of care that extends beyond residential treatment to outpatient services and supportive housing, Casa helps provide vital aftercare that keeps families in recovery connected.

By working with other recovery homes, health and human service organizations, government agencies and public leadership across the city and state—even across the country—we are learning new approaches to treatment, drawing on each other’s strength, spreading the message that treatment works and working to end the cycle of addiction one family at a time.
