CARE Recovery United Community Center welcomes the public with open arms
A ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday marked the official opening of the CARE Recovery United Community Center (CRUCC) in Fraser.
However, word of the new facility that offers individuals suffering from substance abuse access to a specialized team of peer recovery coaches along with a host of free services and programs, with no strings attached, hit the streets in December.
“It’s been a little bit of a struggle getting started because people didn’t know it was here,” said Sue Styf, president and CEO of CARE of Southeastern Michigan, which created the center down the road from its headquarters on Utica Road.
“Then COVID-19 hit,” Styf said. “But we’re starting to see a growing number of people now.”
Those who visit the center, including anyone impacted by substance abuse, can do so at any stage during their recovery journey. Sons looking to break free of their addiction or mothers seeking support to help their sons will find it to be a place where an individual can enter, grow, continue progress and receive the support they need.
CRUCC’s team of more than 40 peer recovery coaches offer individuals an experienced perspective along with recovery-oriented activities ranging from health and wellness to financial literacy, art, music, yoga and other services focused on creating social connections and support.
“We’re excited to have organizations like this,” said Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, who was among the guests to attend the grand opening. “Many of us have family and friends that we can turn to during a difficult time in our life. People we can trust – but not everyone does.”
