Our Veterans

Veteran Support at RCN At Recovery

Community Network (RCN), we are deeply committed to assisting veterans in their recovery journey. With 57% of our board members and 45% of our staff being veterans in recovery, we have a special dedication to supporting the veteran community.

We aim to provide comprehensive services to veterans and their family members through peer-to-peer support and collaboration with other veteran agencies. Thanks to a grant from the State of Minnesota, we have dedicated staff members who offer specialized services to those who have served.

Our commitment includes a weekly in-person and online meeting specifically for veterans in recovery. The meeting, titled "Veterans Experience, Strength, and Hope," takes place every Wednesday at noon. Additionally, in honor of National Recovery Month, we annually present the Chief Master Sergeant Russ Habighorst Humanitarian Award to a veteran in recovery who has been instrumental in spreading the message that recovery is possible.

RCN is passionate about creating a supportive environment where veterans can find the help and hope they need to achieve lasting recovery.

What We Do

At Recovery Community Network (RCN), our mission is to educate the community on substance use disorders and collaborate with influential leaders and lawmakers to expand the safety net for individuals living with or seeking help for substance use disorders. Our comprehensive approach includes:
Free Services: We provide services at no cost to individuals, ensuring that financial barriers do not hinder access to support.
Peer-to-Peer Support: We promote recovery through peer-to-peer services, leveraging the power of shared experiences and mutual support.
Multiple Pathways to Recovery: We utilize diverse pathways to recovery, including harm reduction, to meet individuals where they are on their journey.
Motivational Interviewing and Peer-Based Models: Our approach incorporates motivational interviewing and a peer-based model of help, empowering individuals to take charge of their recovery. Veteran Services: We offer specific services tailored to the needs of our veteran community, acknowledging their unique experiences and challenges.
Housing Assistance: We provide housing assistance to support individuals in the recovery community, recognizing the critical role of stable housing in recovery.
Stigma Reduction: We actively work to decrease stigma and increase recovery options, fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment for all.

By addressing these key areas, RCN is dedicated to building a healthier, more resilient community where recovery is always possible.
