My name is Stefani Capizzi and I am the director of North Central Vermont Recovery Center.
I’m here to tell you that the Lamoille County’s Recovery Center is a really special place. One of the most unique and important qualities about the Recovery Center is that most of the people who work there (including myself, the paid staff, and the 20 plus volunteers) are people in long term recovery from addictions to alcohol and other drugs.This is AWESOME because it says people who struggle with addictions CAN and DO enter into recovery and go on to lead amazing, fulfilling lives. AND, any person who walks through our doors can meet and get help from someone who has probably walked in their shoes and can serve as an example of hope and possibility!
That being said, I am going to tell you what a person can expect when they walk through our doors. First, ALL of our services are free of charge. Yes, free.
An individual having trouble with addiction can find people who will connect them to resources like addiction treatment centers, housing, food, mental and medical health, education and employment, as well as a variety of recovery meetings and support groups held at our center and elsewhere. They will find recovery coaches who are trained to work individually with them, guiding and supporting them throughout their recovery. They will find a safe place to visit, have coffee and a snack, use the computers, read, learn, and sometimes join in social activities.
Loved ones (including grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, spouses, children, or friends) of people with addictions can also find help from family support groups and recovery coaches who work with family members.
Lastly, I’d like invite you to stop by and check out the Recovery Center (275 Brooklyn St. Morrisville, VT) any time we are open during the day:
- Mon: 9am-12pm
- Tues-Fri: 9am-6pm
- Sat-Sun: 11am-4pm
