Recovery takes time and support.
Recovery Café Longmont supports adults as they rebuild their lives and break the cycle of addiction, or overcome a recent crisis or trauma. We strive to stand in the gap between crisis and stability by fostering community-building and life-empowerment.
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 freedom and fulfillment.
Recovery Café Longmont is open in person Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 12:00 to 3:00pm. Virtual support is available Monday through Saturday, 11:00am to 7:00pm. 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 the Café and to the healing of others, and attend a weekly Recovery Circle.
