About Us

Capital District Recovery Center (CDRC) provides a safe, affordable, substance free meeting space for 12 step and other recovery oriented groups, individuals and their families whose lives have been adversely affected by addiction. 

 

CDRC) was founded in 2015 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation with an all volunteer board and staff dedicated to helping improve the lives of people in recovery.

 

CDRC rents meeting space to Twelve-step programs (i.e. Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Overeaters Anonymous, etc.). We have no affiliation with any of these organizations other than to provide a safe place to meet. CDRC offers space for a diversity of affiliated programs oriented toward personal development, mindfulness, spiritual growth and recovery from addiction. CDRC is open to all individuals regardless of age, race, spiritual/religious affiliation, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. CDRC was formed and is managed by a group of volunteers who care deeply about the recovery community. An elected Board of Directors oversees the organization and makes independent decisions about finances, fundraising, administration, and other matters.
