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.

- 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
