Recovery Fusion, an aftercare specialist company based in Santa Barbara, is introducing Recovery Hotline as a separate, nonprofit entity during September’s National Recovery Month.

Robbin O’Neill, Recovery Fusion founder and managing director, said the new site makes a comprehensive range of opportunities easily accessible to the recovery community. “This consolidated online resource goes beyond the schedule of 12-step meetings,” she said. “As crucial as these are to recovery, we need more — people are also seeking social, recreational and cultural activities they can enjoy in sober settings.”

Recovery Hotline includes an events calendar, special features and relevant community links. In addition to information on services and support for people in recovery or looking for assistance, the links provide connections for housing, employment, social networks and diverse community groups and activities.

“This is the only Santa Barbara-focused Web site that gives people in recovery this type of information — think of it as Facebook for crafting and sustaining a healthy, fulfilled, everyday recovery lifestyle,” O’Neill said.

O’Neill said the new service was inspired by her first year with Recovery Fusion, which she established to help integrate individuals into post-treatment sobriety. Recovery Fusion helps clients achieve re-integration to everyday life, working with treatment providers, court systems, families, employers and the community.

“Aftercare is imperative in achieving long-term recovery, and our services bridge the gap between treatment providers and community support groups,” O’Neill said. “All three dynamics are vital to a program that can facilitate the transition from treatment to daily, self-managed recovery over the long term.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
