Recovery Light the Path

Welcome to
MHACG Clubhouses

About the Clubhouses

A safe, drug-free environment

The Youth Clubhouses are a community based, peer-driven recovery program that encourages positive peer, family and community involvement.

The Clubhouses promote long-term recovery through recreation, pro-social activities, skill building opportunities, education, and activities centered on overall health and wellness.

A little bit about what we do

A peer support approach to wellbeing

Community connections are designed to educate youth, families, and professionals to build sustaining positive support systems. We foster opportunities within the community for youth to overcome the current culture of addiction.

Participants of the clubhouse participate in activities that build learning and capabilities; they conduct a live radio broadcast, develop art projects, participate in events, even develop movies.

Our clubhouses don't only promote wellness, but provide windows to gain skills and a foothold in the community.

Having a community to support you and a passion to chase is crucial to healthier living and the Clubhouse provides the space and connections to give that direction.

I go to clubhouse because I feel like it's such an escape from the outside world and you can be there and be comfortable with people who respect you and your boundaries.

Combating the Opioid Epidemic

Providing Naloxone training to the community

We have hired and trained some of the teenagers to be certified youth peer leaders. The new peer leaders learned about opioid use disorder and how to administer life-saving medication like Narcan (Naloxone).

The teens have engaged with the community, providing this training at various locations all over the counties.

The need for youth based services

Together we walk on the path to recovery

Plant Border.png

136 people die every day from an opioid overdose.1 An estimated 3.7% of youth and 15% of young adults suffer from a substance use disorder (SUD). Of these in need of treatment, only 0.6% and 1.6%, respectively, received services.2

It's our mission to change that.

We provide a supportive, peer based center, support, and Naloxone training to help protect against opioid overdoses.

A Cinematic Experience

Making a documentary

Youth Clubhouses provide a place for young adults to participate in engaging activities. In 2021, our youth developed a documentary movie for the CREATE: Flash Film Fest and won an award for Best Youth Film.
