Telephone Recovery Support

Love helping others? Want to share your knowledge about recovery? Have an hour a week to volunteer? Become a Telephone Recovery Support volunteer.

Telephone Recovery Support volunteers provide recovery support to individuals seeking to initiate or maintain their recovery. Volunteers call recipients once a week to check in and connect them with resources to strengthen their recovery.

Becoming a Telephone Recovery Support volunteer peer is a wonderful way to strengthen your own recovery by giving back and staying connected.

Telephone Recovery Support volunteer peers need the following:

  • Six months or longer in recovery
  • The desire to support others in their recovery
  • The willingness to participate in and complete a six-hour training
  • A commitment to volunteer at MRC’s offices for a minimum of two 3-hour shifts per month, for at least two months
