Recovery from a substance use disorder needs a foundation of at least two years of sobriety to ensure long-term recovery (National Institute of Health). Recovery Café Longmont supports women and men in these years as they rebuild their lives and break the cycle of addiction.
Recovery Café teaches members to live in recovery.
Our Members are welcomed into a community that focuses on building long-term mental and physical health as well as maintaining sobriety. We help each individual reclaim his or her life as a person worthy of giving and receiving love. Whether in crisis, newer to recovery, in long-term recovery, after a relapse, during a difficult life change, or mental health transition, the Café is a place of support and stability for all individuals seeking to break the cycle of destruction and despair.
Recovery Café Longmont is open Monday - Friday from noon to 4pm with a communal meal served at 12:30pm. Membership is free and all are welcome. We are a private, nonprofit organization.
Members must be drug and alcohol free for 24-hours, contribute to running the Café and to the healing of others, and attend a weekly Recovery Circle.
