What is “making an amends?” It’s doing something to correct a mistake one has made or a bad situation that one has caused. When we make an amends we go further than just saying “I’m sorry.” We take action to make up for what has happened in the past.
It’s so much more than cleaning up a park. It’s good for the community and good for the volunteer who is giving back in this manner. SRP’s
Adopt-A-Park is one of our Amends in Action programs. Whether you have an amends to make or not, you are welcome to join us in
volunteering to clean up our park.
SRP’s Community Outreach team does this the 2nd Saturday of every month. COME JOIN US! All supplies are provided by SRP. Call for further information: (707) 419-4662.
An important function of a Recovery Community Organization is the public benefit it provides the local community. This program is an organized community service opportunity for individual in recovery to “give back” to the community. We offer projects ranging from Adopting a Park cleaning up litter, and painting to filing paperwork, data entry, phone support and becoming a Recovery Coach if that is their desire. Members volunteer their time to assist another person or family find freedom from substance-use. We use the term “Peer-to-Peer” and moto, “Each one – teach one” as a guide for personal recovery support. By encouraging people in recovery to “stay connected”, (volunteering), this actually enhances their life experiences and increases their success in long-term recovery.
12 step recovery programs include as part of the recovery process a 9th step where the members must “make amends” to those whom they have harmed except when to do so would harmed, this includes the community and neighborhood in which they live. Solano Recovery Project, “Amends In Action” program provides an avenue for members to make these amends by working on community projects.
