What is Phoenix RCO?
Phoenix is an independent non-profit organization called a Recovery Community Organization or RCO. An RCO is led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery from addiction, mental illness, or both. There are currently 40 RCOs open in different stages of development in the state of Georgia. Generally, RCOs provide peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS), carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities. All these activities are available to everyone in the community and are not restricted to individuals enrolled in specific educational, treatment, or residential programs.
Phoenix is providing All-Recovery Meetings at Austell First United Methodist Church for anyone seeking and in recovery and offering one-on-one peer coaching. Eventually, we will be able to help someone in active addiction find a detox, rehab, or sober-living program appropriate in length and cost to their individual need as well as support services for allies. We will provide an exit-support for someone in or coming out of any detox or rehabilitation program. Phoenix will provide referrals to food, shelter and clothing resources to anyone in recovery needing these basic services. We will also provide education, resume and employment services for those in recovery looking to better their lives. Eventually Phoenix will serve as a safe haven, a resource, and a gathering place for those in recovery from addiction. We are currently in the process of working to develop all these areas of our organization.
