A peer-led, peer-driven community embracing all pathways of recovery
Living in Recovery was established in 2018 in loving memory of Joseph R. Botz, to provide a variety of non-clinical, peer-led support, educational and social options.
Emphasis is on making the recovery experience interesting, fun, and sustainable. Living in Recovery supports all pathways and stages of recovery.
Family members, loved ones, and allies of those who have been, or who are currently addicted, are encouraged to become members and to participate in creating a community of hope.
Community members share their time and talent to increase the quantity and quality of social activities, community events, training, and workshops offered to the recovery community.
Proud of their strength and resilience, many of the members “put a face on recovery” by sharing their experience publicly—helping to reduce the stigma associated with addiction.
Living in Recovery is a recognized member of the national Association of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO) at Faces & Voices of Recovery.
All are Welcome
We are located in Pittsfield, MA.
Members are supported wherever they are in their recovery journey, and however they got there. Everyone learns from each other’s experience.
