Recovery Community Center
Foundation for Recovery (FFR) operates Nevada’s first Peer Recovery Community Center in Las Vegas. Our Peer Recovery Community Center is managed by a small staff and supported by many volunteers. It is the hub for all our work with peers and our efforts within the community. It is an open place where individuals ranging from new to long term recovery and their families can have access to resources, socialization, support, and skill-building. Our Recovery Community Center also provides a setting to become a peer volunteer and assist those who are seeking recovery. The purpose of our center is to offer an atmosphere of hope, wellness, and care for better living in recovery.
FFR’s Recovery Community Center in Las Vegas has ties to a variety of community resources and organizations to assist program participants to rebuild their lives and self-esteem. FFR offers space for 12-step programs, available 24/7, 365 days annually. Through a partnership with the Clark County Parenting Project, parenting classes are offered weekly onsite in one of FFR’s training rooms. FFR also partners with UNLV’s TRIO program offering HSE (High School Equivalence) pre-testing and tutoring, which is housed and utilized by our peers to not only obtain their HSE, but to also enroll in college and apply for grants such as the FAFSA. FFR staff and Peer Recovery Specialists are trained in AMHFA, (Adult Mental Health First Aid Training) and SafeTALK, Suicide Prevention Training (also housed at FFR).
