There is life in recovery!
Learn how we can help
Purple Mountain Recovery is here to help you make connections, find support, and walk along side you in your journey.
Who We Are:
Purple Mountain Recovery is a 501 (3)(c) founded in July of 2022 to create a safe place in the LGBTQIA+ community for people recovering from mental health and/or addiction. The name Purple Mountain is a nod to the founder's mother, who stood by his side and envisioned a world where everyone had access to the same care as he battled living in a world where many resources or safe places were not available to the LGBTQIA+ community while they were struggling with their recovery.
Purple Mountain Recovery aims to build a place where anyone battling or recovering from mental health and addiction can come and get the much-needed support and resources they may need. We aim to embrace our community with love and show them that recovery is possible and achievable. We aim to erase the stigmas about the LGBTQAI+ community as well as the stigmas around addiction, harm reduction, mental health, recovery, and healing.
Our services are always available for free.

What is a Peer Support?
Peer support encompasses a range of activities and interactions between people who have shared similar experiences, this mutuality- often referred to as "peerness"- between a peer worker and person using services promotes connection and inspires hope.
Peer support offers a level of acceptance, understanding, and validation not found in many other professional relationships (Mead and Mcneil, 2006). By sharing their own lived experience and practical guidance, peer workers help people to develop their own goals create strategies for self-empowerment, and take concrete steps towards building fulfilling, self-determined lives for themselves.
A strong support system makes things happen.
Just like how we provide you with a solid support system, our community does the same for us. We are proud to partner with the following organizations:
