Roque Center Recovery
Roque Center, Inc. was founded as a nonprofit corporation in March of 1972 by a group caring men and women whose lives had been touched in one form or another by the disease of alcoholism or addiction. Our mission has been and remains: “To help those who suffer from alcoholism and addiction to access affordable treatment that they would not otherwise be able to afford in traditional “for profit” private sector treatment programs.”
Since our humble beginnings some 40 years ago we have helped over 34,000 clients receive quality care and treatment in our Social Model, peer oriented and home-like recovery setting. Our program is designed to assist men and women in developing a foundation for long term recovery by affecting positive change in lifestyle and behavior through education, counseling, exposure to alternative coping skills and positive role models, i.e., staff and those further along in the recovery process.
Our life experienced, successfully recovering and caring staff are certified substance abuse professionals who have chosen to dedicate their lives to helping those who wish to recover from alcoholism and addiction to other drugs. We serve our residents through education, one-on-one counseling, guidance, self-disclosure, our truly caring nature and insight into the principles and psychological dynamics contained within our highly reinforced 12-step based approach to recovery. “More people are clean and sober today as a result of AA’s twelve step program than all other treatment methods combined.” (Kessler 1997)
With the realization that recovery is a process and not an event, we are here for our clients and family members both during and after graduation. We offer a free aftercare program through our Wednesday night “Alumni Group” and a Friday Night “Family Group” at no charge to family members and loved ones, many of whom continue to attend long after their loved one has completed the program.
