York in recovery

Welcome to York in Recovery.

Who are we? 

York In Recovery are a peer-support, and peer led recovery group. We are experts in lived experience and therefore offer a safe space, fun activities, and companionship for members of the York community who are either in recovery or who may not be in recovery but have an interest. We're a judgement free zone, we've all walked in each others shoes, so if you're considering starting your path to recovery, or if you've been in recovery for some time and are looking for a bunch of like-minded people to hang out with - come along! 

 

Our main point of contact is our Thursday afternoon Recovery Cafe, which is coordinated and ran by group members. This takes place in York City Centre and is open for anyone to come along. Find out more on on The Recovery Cafe page. Along with the cafe, we have our allotment, Serenity Garden, as well as many WhatsApp groups and Facebook groups to keep you in the loop. 

 

Whether it's gardening, drama, catching up with friends, outdoor activities, or cute puppy pictures that you're into, there's something for everyone at York in Recovery. We know sometimes it can be daunting reaching out, but we accept everyone as they come. Take a look at our website, and feel free to join us in person, pop us a text, or perhaps you're not ready to join the group yet, but you'd like to share your experiences with someone? In that case go along to the Share your Story tab, where you can send it. A poem, blog post, story, or just a rant to one of our group coordinators. 

 

6 members of York in Recovery stood outside the cafe. There is a mix of 2 women and 4 men of differing ages. They are huddles together some with arms around one another.
