Recovery Resource Center
The Recovery Resource Center is located at the Rosecrance Ware Center, which offers outpatient services for adult mental health clients. The Recovery Resource Center provides assistance to those in need and the opportunity for peer support, mentoring and community volunteerism.
In the Center, individuals find answers and learn from others who have faced similar situations. Participation in activities and other evidence-based practices give individuals and caregivers the tools to become their best advocate. This service is free and open to the public.
Professionals will be able to earn Continuing Education Credits and be able to print a certificate upon completion of the course for a small fee. WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plans) Crisis Plans are available in 49 different languages.
