This program nurtures self-direction, empowerment and choice. Recovery is often a difficult journey that the Recovery Support staff aim to make easier by providing peers to offer emotional, informational, instrumental and affiliational support.

Recovery Support Service is led by Program Manager, Deidre Creasy however the success of this program wouldn’t be possible without the expertise and dedication of Leslie Fitzgerald, Ann Mason Rumble and Catherine Connell.
