SpirtWorks Foundation operates Recovery Community Centers in Williamsburg and Warrenton, peer-operated centers that provide community-based recovery support. Individuals and families do not live at the centers, but rather can access resources to help build recovery capital through advocacy training, recovery information and resource mobilization, mutual-help or peer-support organization meetings (e.g. 12-step groups, Celebrate Recovery), social activities, and other community-based services. We believe recovery to be a self-defined process with many possible pathways to achieving the improved quality of life and well-being that comes with recovery. We’re dedicated to helping individuals and families navigate those pathways and overcome obstacles they encounter on their journey to recovery.
Through positive self-care, individuals can discover purpose and meaning, take into account their unique life story and major life themes, tasks, and lessons thereby allowing the individual to continue in personal transformation, to increase recovery capital, to gain a more conscious understanding of life, and to develop a sense of harmony and balance.
The Center for Spiritual Recovery is for those who want God to be part of their recovery. The Center offers retreats as well as individual and group guidance and direction for those seeking to deepen their commitment to spiritual renewal and spiritual recovery.
