RPSV was founded in 2011 to support adults with mental health, substance abuse, and homelessness issues. We serve ~9,000 adults annually through our in-person drop-in Recovery Centers (in Annandale, Arlington, Merrifield, Reston, and South County Alexandria).
At the Centers, we offer one-on-one and group support, access to benefits, employment services, recreational therapy, meals/snacks, and more.
RPSV also offers 15 free weekly telehealth virtual support groups and Warm Line phone aid (for individuals who need someone to talk to. A Warm Line is designed to help before a crisis ensues).
RPSV team members are all individuals who have gone through recovery. They serve as 'living role models' to participants that recovery is possible.
RPSV relies on the peer support model (versus the medical model which focuses on medication and costly hospitalizations). The peer support model has been proven as effective as the medical model. And, for every person served by RPSV, the counties of Fairfax or Arlington save thousands in related medical costs.
We are proud to serve the citizens of Northern Virginia! Learn more about RPSV at rpsva.org and please connect with us on social media.
