CRCC’s Independent Living Program aims to help individuals living in the Austin area to establish a substance free and independent life by providing peer recovery support services, job training and/or placement, life skills development, and sober social-recreational activities. Individuals can participate in a 4-week intensive training to  obtain employment in hospitals, restaurants and other organizations or to become self-employed.

RSS offers life skills and recovery education classes to recovering individuals who have a history of substance use disorder in the state of Illinois that need extra support to sustain their recovery. We also provide individual personalized sessions to help clients and their families remove barriers to recovery.  Join Our Weekly Classes Monday - Thursday 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM.

Please join us our Recovery Workforce Network! The goals of this Task Force are to establish and enhance employment-based recovery support services and address and remove barriers that bar individuals in recovery from gainful employment and increase access to workforce activities for the recovery community. Join us: The Council Monthly Meetings held the 4th Friday 10:00am - 12:00pm.

Chris

Sober since 2019

"Hi, my name is Christopher, and I have 4 years in recovery. What helped me overcome my problems was to surround myself with good people. The most helpful advice I can give is when you don't know where you are going, get behind someone who does."

Dana

Sober since 2023 

 

"My name is Dana. I am 40 years old and started using hard drugs in 2012. My addiction didn't start to get better until 2023. Today, I can say I have not used for nine months. I feel great, and I get the rights to my kids in March. I feel strong and worthy. All I need to do is take one day at a time."

Alice

Chicago Recovery Community Member

“Hi, my name is Alice. I started drinking at a very young age - around 11 or 12 years old. I went to rehab and finished it and gave my life to God. I have relapsed a few times since but here I am and today, I can say I’m in a good place. I have family and friends, and a man that loves me and supports me."
