RISE UP Recovery started as a grass-roots nonprofit organization in Hastings, MN. Founder, Tiffany and her husband Chad both in long term recovery began to notice significant gaps with the substance use disorder services available in their community. Tiffany, working as a counselor, and Chad knowing many people in the community experiencing active symptoms; often came up empty handed with people seeking help. The services that support and promote long-term recovery were simply not there. This inspired them through their deep faith and passion for recovery to be a part of the solution. RISE UP Recovery is founded on Christian principles and believes that recovery is possible for everyone. Our aim is to make that a reality within our community. We strive to decrease overall stigma around substance use disorders and give recoverees a voice, hope and the respect every human deserves. We are highly invested in each recoveree and believe in "raising up" leadership as they are able to give back and share the hope and healing they have found on their personal recovery journeys.
We have a person-centered strengths based approach that honors all pathways to recovery. We whole-heartedly believe in peer recovery support as a powerful service that addresses the gaps in substance use disorder services and significantly increases individuals quality and experience in long-term recovery. We focus on assessing and supporting individuals as they grow their recovery capital (internal and external resources and supports) as well as intentionally working toward building our overall community's recovery capital.
Philosophy of Recovery
Recovery is a deeply personal process that involves changing of attitudes, taking on new roles, developing new skills and forming new relationships while working towards living a satisfying, productive, hope-filled life in spite of limitations associated with having a substance use disorder. Recovery is not a black and white, all or nothing process. It is as unique as each individual we serve.
Commitment to Recoverees
Addiction can have a crippling effect on you and those around you, and can lead to isolation and a sense of hopelessness. Our commitment to each recoveree who reaches out for help is provide them with the best non-clinical, strengths based support services tailored to their unique needs. We commit to building up and not shaming, advocating not stigmatizing, to be an ally, encourager, supporter, truth teller and friend as you make informed decisions on your chosen pathways of recovery.
