Business Spotlight: Recovery Connection

The primary goal of addiction counseling is to help the client achieve and maintain abstinence from addictive chemicals and behaviors. The secondary goal is to help the client recover from the damage the addiction has done to the client’s life. Participation in a self-help program is considered an extremely valuable aid to recovery. It helps recovering individuals develop a social support network outside of their treatment program, teaches the skills needed to recover, and helps clients take responsibility for their own recovery. For five years, the counselors at Recovery Connection have done just that.

For too long there has been a stigma in treating people who suffer with Substance Use Disorder. Being called an "addict" is slang many people use to judge someone by their own stereotypes. Recovery Connection provides access for recovery services to allow anyone to get treatment in an empathetic, caring, and respectful manner. “Our happiness in running this business is in our clients who find treatment which boosts them up in life,” says Michael Brier, CMO, “We are a strong support resource for our clients as they deal with the highs and lows of everyday life.”

“Washington Trust is one of very few banks who is welcoming to small business,” says Brier, “They are always available to help with any questions or needs we might have.”
