2019 Kay Sheehan Spirit of the Community Award
In the three years since opening their doors, Northampton Recovery Center has become a vital regional resource in the fight against addiction and for recovery. They have grown quickly, starting at Edwards Church before moving into their own space in downtown Northampton that has allowed them to provide more services, longer hours, and increased visitations.
Their peer-to-peer counseling and support for individuals, their families, and allies is nothing short of life changing.

NRC is a safe peer-driven community that provides a positive welcoming environment for people on all pathways and in all stages of recovery from addiction, as well as for their families and allies. Together we share support, resources and hope.
The Center is open to people with direct experience with substance use—currently seeking or in recovery and people affected, like family and friends. Feel free to attend all or part of the open hours. We will be adding more hours as we grow.
The Northampton Recovery Center is funded in part, by the United Way of Hampshire County, the City of Northampton Health Department from a federal FR CARA SAMHSA grant, and a variety of state and community organizations and private donations.
