THRIVE Recovery Community & Outreach Center
THRIVE is transformational, healing, recovery, inspiration, validation and empowerment
Peer led and peer driven community center that supports individuals and families find, maintain, and strengthen their recovery.
Since opening our doors in March 2017 as Long Island’s first recovery community and outreach center, THRIVE has been helping individuals and families find, maintain and strengthen their recovery. This free and non-clinical center opened in response to the heroin and opioid epidemic sweeping across the country. Due to the success of THRIVE Suffolk and the continued need for services and support in our communities, THRIVE Nassau later opened in June 2019 and THRIVE East End in November 2021.

Our recovery coaches provide a peer-to-peer relationship to support you in sustaining recovery and overall wellness so you can achieve your goals. Through one-on-one weekly sessions, a coach will provide guidance and encouragement in building a support network and developing a personalized recovery plan.
We will provide you with the tools and resources you’ll need while making sure to address any barriers and obstacles that might arise.
