The A.E.D. Foundation operates Alyssa's Place: Peer Recovery and Resource Center to provide assistance to people seeking help for substance use, people in recovery, and people affected by the substance use of a friend or loved one. Unlike traditional substance use programs, Alyssa's Place is governed by the people it serves. Our model of peer recovery has been proven effective and fills the massive void that exists between active substance use and clinical treatment. We offer weekly mutual aid groups of all kinds and are also seeking to offer more. If you have a substance use related support group that needs a place to meet contact us.
The center is staffed by volunteers who are in recovery or people who have had to help an addicted loved one find help and all services are provided free of charge.
No appointments are necessary and all information is kept confidential. There is hope, stop in and see us today!
