LEROs offer accessible, empathetic support where newcomers feel as welcome and comfortable as possible. They are introduced to the support of unconditional human relationships where they can feel valued, safe, and understood. LEROs whose staff have their own lived experience embody the concept that recovery is possible. This gives newcomers and members evidence that they can successfully navigate their own journey towards wellness. Support, positivity, and learning offered by lived experience engenders the possibility of change as a realistic opportunity for those seeking it.
