RI Monthly features Anchor recovery center inside women’s prison
Posted: Wed, May 07, 2014
RI Monthly featured Anchor DryDOC, the first recovery center located inside Rhode Island’s Adult Correctional Institution.
Anchor Recovery DryDOC provides women at the ACI with a place to meet within the existing facility and hold support groups, recovery coaches—people with lived experience who provide advice, support and friendship—and the opportunity to become a recovery coach themselves through a 30-hour training. Women at DryDOC are also connected to the services they need to maintain their recovery once they re-enter their communities and are introduced to members and staff from the other two Anchor Recovery Community Centers in order to facilitate continued participation upon release.
