Recovery in Motion (RIM) is both an organization and a Support Center. It offers a variety of supportive services, including support groups and one-on-one wellness coaching. No formal diagnosis is needed. Participation is free. Part-time paid staff is supported by an extensive group of Peer volunteers. Please call or check the hours that we're open and come visit.

We started as a group of individuals recovering our mental health who first became acquainted through the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) workshops in this region.
  
Today, services are provided in community settings like libraries, churches and hospitals as well as in the new Center.

The RIM Support Center is located in the
Goodwill Community Resource Center, 4701 Market St., Fredericksburg VA 22408
 
 
Within RIM and the field of mental health, Peers are individuals who each have personal experience with mental health challenges and/or substance use disorder and who are in a supportive relationship with each other.  Experience and extensive formal research has repeatedly shown the surprising power and cost-effectiveness of Peers working together.
 
Those who wish to participate in activities at the Support Center agree to a Code of Conduct and are welcomed as Members.
