Recovery Café Longmont

What is Recovery Café Longmont?

Our mission is to be a community of refuge and healing for people in recovery. But, what does that mean? Simply put, we understand the process is more complicated than just making the decision to be recovered. Being stable for a day or a week doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll stick for the long haul – and Recovery Café Longmont is about the long haul. That’s why we work hard to provide our members with a healthy, stable community – a place to belong. Because while we teach our members the skills to stay recovered, it’s our relationships that support us through our darkest times.


As we see it, everyone is in recovery from something. Whether you are looking for support for mental health challenges, substance use, isolation, trauma, or other life challenges, there is a place for you here. There are many pathways to recovery. We provide a safe environment to experience and grow in whatever process rings true to the individual. In addition to Recovery Circles, the Café is home to several outside support groups including Alcoholics Anonymous, SMART Recovery, and Crystal Meth Anonymous. 


Our primary approach to addressing recovery is providing a loving community. Within this community, we offer peer support, education, resource referrals, recreational activities, shared meals, and programs of accountability.



What Does Recovery Café Require of our Members?

  • Be substance-free while in the Café
  • Meet weekly with a small, loving accountability group called a Recovery Circle
  • Contribute by helping maintain the physical space and to create a culture of healing and unconditional love

What is the Recovery Café Model?

The key to our model is the firm belief that every person is in need of recovery from something and, having chosen the recovery journey, has wisdom to share with others. This belief is the grounding on which we have built our recovery programming.

Research literature has identified four types of social support that Recovery Café provides throughout our programming:

  • emotional – demonstrating empathy, caring, and concern to build a person’s self-esteem;
  • informational – sharing knowledge and information to provide life and/or vocational training;
  • instrumental – providing concrete assistance to help people accomplish tasks; and
  • affiliational – facilitating contacts with other people to promote learning of social skills, create community, and instill a sense of belonging. (Cobb, 1976; Salzer, 2002)

Furthermore, while providing these social supports, our model is also committed to incorporating and aligning programming with the 10 SAMSHA-identified components of successful recovery programs: Self Direction, Individualized and Person-centered, Empowerment, Holistic, Non-Linear, Strengths-based, Peer Support, Respect, Responsibility, and Hope. Following the lead of King County’s Behavioral Health and Recovery Division, we have also adopted the component of “resiliency” which overlaps with and reinforces the aforementioned four elements of social support. We have assimilated these evidence-based practices in our programming and will continue to do so in every new program initiative, enhancement, or revision.

What the Recovery Café Model is not?

Recovery Café is not treatment, but we operate within a substance use disorder recovery and mental health framework and we welcome collaboration with treatment partners. Many members are already engaged with the treatment system, in which case we provide support to remain anchored in an environment that supports recovery.

Recovery Café is more than a drop-in center. While we provide radical hospitality to all who enter the front door, we encourage visitors to become a contributing and consistent member of our community.

At Recovery Café Longmont We Recover Together.

Without ongoing recovery support, the challenge of maintaining stability may feel nearly impossible. Recovery is a life-long journey that is often not met solely by 30-day treatment programs. Where can you go on day 31?

One in eight Coloradans have a mental health condition and many struggle with substance misuse. Longmont is not immune to the opioid crisis occurring nationally. According to Boulder County Public Health, the number of people in Boulder County who were treated for heroin misuse increased by 128 percent between 2010 and 2016, resulting in more than 191 deaths and making opioid-related deaths more common than deaths from car accidents. 

In 2022, Colorado reported 1,500 alcohol related deaths. The actual toll is likely twice that when counting chronic conditions cause or worsened by drinking. 42% of people who died by suicide and had toxicology information had alcohol in their systems at their times of death (Wingerter, 2024).

The U.S. Surgeon General (2023) states that even prior to COVID-19, about half of Americans reported feelings of loneliness and the lack of social connection increases risk of premature death by more than 60%.

Our Epidemic of Loneliness and Isolation:

According to the National Institutes of Health, individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder need a foundation of at least two years of sobriety to ensure long-term recovery. 

The definition of recovery goes well beyond abstinence of substances; it is experienced as a bountiful “new life,” an ongoing process of growth, connection, and reclaiming the self. One connection at a time, we are building a community of refuge, healing, and social capital without the use of substances.


At Recovery Café Longmont … Your Journey Can Begin Today.

We provide a loving, warm, safe, substance-free community space to anchor people in their sustained recovery. Our vison is to be an enlightened community in which people are empowered to become the best version of themselves.
