What is Great Bear Recovery Collective?
Great Bear Recovery Collective aspires to provide meaningful support to community members in Juneau, Alaska who fall within the substance use continuum. We seek to cultivate a thriving fellowship of people in recovery who have gained a life of meaning and purpose and wish to share it back.
Who We Are:
Our Recovery Community Organization is governed by a board of people in long-term recovery from substance use disorder. We are a collective of people who have a passion for life. Because we have personally seen what a life of recovery means, we want to support others in their pursuit of freedom from addiction.
We aim to build a sober and supportive community. Therefore, our scope of action includes creating a clean and sober environment for people struggling with addiction. Our mission is to teach people to have fun again in a healthy way, by offering regular sober activities and events. In addition, by providing peer support and mutual support groups, we hope to help people’s lives become more enriched. As a result, we believe people in recovery can find a way to bring brain, body, and heart back into balance. Thus allowing them the chance at a new way of life. Ultimately, we plan to build a Recovery Community Center someday. Then we can provide our services and hold a safe and sober space for those struggling with substance use.
