Recovery is the expectation, not the exception.

Unity Recovery is a recovery community organization (RCO) serving the Philadelphia community. We believe recovery is an individualized and dynamic process, and support those with mental health or substance use disorders, no matter the pathway you use.

Community-based, Community-informed
Unity Recovery supports all pathways and programs of recovery from mental health and substance use disorders – everyone in the community is always welcome at the center.
Voices of recovery
We believe that recovery is contagious and strive to help everyone find their voice to support long-term recovery and wellness through peer-based recovery support services.
No fees. Ever. Really.
We never charge a fee (like really, no fees, ever, for anyone) because everyone deserves the best chance to find and sustain personal recovery. Thanks to the generosity of the community and our partners, no one ever pays a penny at Unity.
What the community says…
We love the work we do at Unity Recovery, but don’t just take our word for it!
Here’s a few thoughts from community members we have engaged
Adam SleddCommunity Member

Unity is a valuable addition to the array of recovery support services in the City of Philadelphia. Their inclusion of harm reduction services addresses a critical need while raising awareness of intersectionality in the recovery community.

Every community needs a center like Unity; it helped our family find the support we needed and I don't know where we would be if it wasn't available!

Larry CastroCommunity Member

The staff and peers at UR RCC are always welcoming and supportive. Whether it is to drop in and get narcan or to talk about my day, I always feel like I'm at home. Thanks for everything!

Sarah JessupFamily Member

UR RCC was there for my brother when we had no where else to turn. We're donating today so that the next family has access to no-cost community services when they are in need. Thanks Unity!

Volunteers make the difference every day.
