LDA Recovery Community Center

  • The Lost Dreams Awakening (LDA) Recovery Center is a resource for education, training, support and socialization for those in recovery and their family and friends. It is meant to validate that recovery from the disease of addiction is possible! 
  • Our Recovery Center is the nucleus for our services. 

  • The Recovery Support Services, and educational programming available at the LDA Recovery Center utilize the experience and knowledge of trained Recovery Coaches and PA Certified Recovery Specialist. 

  • LDA Recovery Support Services (RSS) are non-clinical services fastening the seams between treatment and recovery. We focus on removing barriers and providing resources to those who are seeking to attain and maintain long-term recovery. 

  • The support WE offer is not meant to replace treatment or the diverse pathways of recovery. 
  •  The LDA Recovery Center strives to be a catalyst in improving quality of life, averting relapse and sustaining recovery!

What is a Recovery Community Organization


A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. These organizations organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and/or provide peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS). The broadly defined recovery community – people in long-term recovery, their families, friends and allies, including recovery-focused addiction and recovery professionals – includes organizations whose members reflect religious, spiritual and secular pathways of recovery. The sole mission of an RCO is to mobilize resources within and outside

of the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Public education, policy advocacy and peer-based recovery support services are the strategies through which this mission is achieved.
