Recovery in Motion's Mission
Our mission is to provide resources for and by individuals with mental health challenges and/or substance use disorders in the Rappahannock Region who choose to share in their mutual recovery and growth.
Community Give is Just Around the Corner!

The Community Give is about working together for a single day, celebrating our spirit of generosity and making a significant and heartfelt impact on each of the lives touched by the hard-working nonprofit organizations serving our region. The Community Give is a 24-hour day of giving on Tuesday May 3, 2016 from 12:00 a.m. until midnight. It is a day when everyone in our region is asked to make a donation and show support for the local nonprofit organizations that positively impact our lives every day.

With your help, they will give more individual donations to area nonprofits than has ever been given in a single day. The maximum amount of every dollar raised goes directly to local nonprofit organizations and keeps our community thriving. And there are bonus contests throughout the day! Random drawings and cash prizes mean that participating nonprofits can raise even more money to support their missions.

Join us on May 3rd, 2016. Make it a Million!

History and Supporters


Peer Power




Recovery in Motion (RIM) is both a non-profit organization and a Support Center located inside of the Goodwill Community Resource 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. To learn more about RIM, listen to an interview with radio host Ted Schubel - August 2014 RIM Interview.  You can also friend us on RIM'S Facebook page.



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.

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.
