RECOVERY LEARNING CENTERS

Our Recovery Learning Centers (RLCs) provide peer services for people in recovery from psychiatric conditions and/or substance misuse. Everyone is welcomed at Vinfen RLCs.

Our RLCs are run entirely for and by people with lived experience of psychiatric conditions and/or substance misuse; people who been there and want to help others recover. We serve as examples that recovery is possible. Our services utilize peer support, advocacy, referral, education, career coaching, job readiness, financial literacy, wellness, and social activities in a sensitive and person-centered manner. Members also have access to a phone and computers for learning basic computer skills, practice essay writing, resume building, or other school-and job-related purposes.

All services, groups, classes, and activities are free of charge. Peer staff can also help community members understand and access resources including Social Security, MassHealth, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, access passes, and public assistance.
