Friends 4 Recovery Whole Health Center was established in 2009 by Carla Beck and Nancy Castellon. We aim to provide an accepting and welcoming environment in which individuals from all backgrounds can learn techniques to manage their substance abuse and/or mental health disorders.
We are a peer-run wellness and education center for all struggling in the process of recovery. We focus on cultivating your strengths and supporting you in your personal whole health recovery goals. We accomplish this by providing peer-led classes that benefit your recovery journey. We also provide one-on-one peer support with a Certified Peer Support Specialist (through the Virginia Certification Board) that will support you in your person-centered goals and connect you with resources in the Chesterfield County community.
Our mission is to support peers on their journey to recovery through help, hope, and healing from mental health and/or substance use problems.
Everyone on the Friends 4 Recovery staff, as well as those that serve on the Board of Directors, identifies as someone who has experienced a mental health and/or substance abuse disorder. We are here to model recovery and support you in your mental health and/or substance abuse goals.
