Telephone Recovery Support

Telephone Recovery Support volunteers call recipients once a week to check in and connect them with resources to strengthen their recovery.

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
  • The ability to volunteer at MRC’s offices about one hour per week
  • No violent or predatory convictions

Volunteer Peers

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 Training prepares volunteer peers to provide recovery support to individuals seeking to initiate or maintain their recovery.
