RCCC putting up the Christmas Tree

Two Vancouver recovery centers want sobriety to have its fun moments-12/29/19

About a dozen people are gathered inside Recovery Cafe Clark County in Vancouver, eating sandwiches and chips and playing darts.

There’s a small putting green rolled out on the floor. Conversation flows, and then William O’Connor, 51, steps to the microphone. He looks to his friend Charles Hanset, who’s playing darts.

“Hey Charles, this is your song, OK buddy,” O’Connor jokes.

O’Connor is not shy of the spotlight, so he takes another second to make sure people know he’s about to sing.

“Can everybody hear me in the back? Can you guys hear me in the balcony?” he asks the small group congregating in the small room without a balcony.

With a few eyes settled on him, O’Connor unleashes an energetic cover of Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl (Shake It for Me).” Read more of this Article Here>>

With Pride and Warm Heart!! – Keith Wells -12/14/19

Our community came together today to help our homeless friends for the winter months.
Our 2nd annual “Reach to Homeless ” drive was a huge success. We built 150+ care packages. Fifty more than last year and much more in the packages. We collected almost 1800 items for the packages. So many people to thank for donations, time and effort this year.

Weekly walking group on the road to recovery from drug, alcohol abuse 08/03/19

Recovering from drug or alcohol addiction is like a long walk.

The path that brings one to recovery in the first place can also feel like a long walk, so it’s fitting that Recovery Cafe Clark County has started offering recovery walks every Wednesday morning.

The walks are about 30 minutes, and 1 to 1 1/2 miles around the Cafe on East Fourth Plain Boulevard in Vancouver. There are usually about four walkers each time.

Olivia Zakit, who has 10 years sobriety from crystal methamphetamine, has felt her confidence build when she joins the weekly walks. Zakit was in a car accident last year and suffered a traumatic brain injury. So in addition to recovering from drug use, Zakit has been walking a path to recovery from her wreck.

She’s enjoyed the unity and fellowship of the walks. Each walk ends with a stop at Black Rock Coffee Bar on East Fourth Plain (and drinks of coffee are paid for by the cafe).

“It has helped me come out of my comfort zone and stop isolating,” Zakit said. Read More of this Article here>>
