Sunrise Community is the first peer staffed & managed organization in Western North Carolina serving those in recovery from substance use and mental health challenges. We help people navigate mental health systems, social and community reentry from incarceration. We have found that recovery can be successful by utilizing many different pathways. We are dedicated to helping each individual find the pathway that works best for them. We assist them in navigating that pathway to achieve an improved quality of life. We are staffed largely by peer support specialists who are persons certified by the state to utilize experience with mental health and substance use disorders, houselessness or incarceration to help others with their life journey.
Our mission is to empower individuals and the community to manage and overcome substance use and mental health challenges.
Sunrise Community for Recovery & Wellness provides a variety of programs and services for individuals affected by substance use and mental health challenges. We also seek to serve as a community umbrella to all local organizations with similar missions.
