We believe that all people can change and grow and that services built on choice enable that growth.  We know that individual differences enrich our lives with diversity, new ideas and new perspectives. We know that people are spiritual beings who seek meaning and purpose for their lives and so we are committed to holistic care.  We see that peer support is effective in promoting growth and recovery.

Ultimately, it is the extraordinary community of individuals and employees that make COMHAR a special place.  It is “COMHAR People” who want to make a difference by supporting recovery and changing lives for the better.  From program to program, this spirit and committment permeate our organization.

Recovery Journeys

At COMHAR we recognize the power of one’s lived experience and the value it offers others who are new to the recovery process. Peer culture is one of the pillars of recovery and a valuable aspect of the COMHAR community. Through sharing one’s journey of recovery others have an opportunity to consider the possibility of realizing their own hopes and dreams. Recovery journeys offer a glimpse into our members’ lives, their challenges, struggles, and accomplishments. The sharing of one’s personal story about one’s journey has a healing effect on both the member and those who witness the power of the spoken or written word.
