Our Support

Connection is the key

Our Veterans

Serving those who have served...

The RCN is passionate about assisting veterans in recovery.  57% of our board members are veterans in recovery and 45% of our staff are veterans in recovery. We hold a special charge to assist anyone in the veteran community who may be living with or seeking help with a substance use disorder. 

 We seek to provide services to our veterans and their family members through peer-to-peer services and collaboration with other veteran  agencies.  Through a grant from the State of Minnesota we have dedicated staff-members who provide services to those who have served.

We also hold a weekly in-person and online meeting for veterans in recovery.  The meeting is entitled: Veterans Experience, Strength and Hope and it meets every Wednesday at noon.
Additionally, once a year during National Recovery Month, we bestow the Chief Master Sergeant Russ Habighorst Humanitarian Award upon one veteran in recovery who has been instrumental in spreading the message that recovery is possible! 


What We Do

We educate the community on substance use disorders and we work with centers of influence and lawmakers to broaden the safety net for those who are living with or seeking help with a substance use disorder.  Additionally, we...
• Provide services that are no cost to the individual;
• Promote recovery through peer to peer services;
• Utilize multiple pathways to recovery including harm reduction;
• Use motivational interviewing and a peer-based model of help;
• Provide specific services to our veteran community;
• Provide housing assistance to the recovery community; 
• Decrease stigma and increases recovery options.
