Community Outreach

Doc’s Recovery House exists to equip and empower people to seek and find long-term recovery from substance use disorder. In order to accomplish this vision, we partner with community groups to provide outreach programs in addition to our core work providing housing and recovery support to men and women seeking treatment.  

HOPE Program

The HOPE Program is a self-governed support network for families and loved ones of individuals struggling with substance use disorder and/or those who have recovered. This monthly meeting invites family members in the community to gather together for support and encouragement, hosted at the Doc’s Recovery House Community Center. 

Police-Assisted Recovery (PAR) Program

This program exists in partnership between Doc’s Recovery House and the Rochester Police Department to provide a safe and supportive housing environment for individuals that have an interaction with law enforcement but choose to seek recovery. In this program, Doc’s Recovery House partners with law enforcement officers to create a supportive pathway to treatment and recovery support by providing a safe bed, daily peer recovery groups and individual peer recovery support while the individual waits for placement in a residential treatment setting.

Project Legacy

Project Legacy is an empowerment program for youth and young adults of color in Southeast Minnesota. In this partnership, Doc’s Recovery House serves as the resource for peer recovery support, providing education and awareness to youth and young adults of color who are experiencing challenges with substance use disorder or the substance use of a family or loved one.
