ACHR has shown me first hand how peers in recovery can make a difference!


Rating: 5

I think that this agency is so unique and appreciated by all the clients that come here for a variety of services. If you need peer support for maintaining sobriety or if your looking for a job and have not been working for awhile, ACHR can help. ACHR is committed to helping clients with peer recovery in many different ways and the staff here is fantastic to be around! I appreciate all the time that I have spent volunteering here at this agency!

Albuquerque Center for Hope and Recovery is an amazing, wonderful, unique and diverse facility that offers an array of services to anyone who walks through their door. The very thoughtful, caring and competent staff at ACHR also includes interns from CNM and NMHU who are getting an introduction as to the skills and demeanor needed to help others non-judgmentally. Administrators and structure are also top-notch with this organization, and their location in the Albuquerque downtown area is ideal. As a person in long term recovery myself, it is comforting to know that there is a place in town that provides exactly as their title reads: HOPE and RECOVERY! Thank you ACHR for all you do.

ACHR is an amazing non-profit! They help the community of Albuquerque with coping skills and a place to come to and not be judged. I worked there this summer as a Surveyor and they were professional! They do a lot of great work and I recommend to all my clients if they are located in ALBQ to go there. ACHR helps populations that are in need for better coping skills to help them with their daily living activities and be functional. Once again, ACHR is a great place to go as a client or referral if you are a mental health professional!
