The Albuquerque Center for Hope & Recovery (ACHR) was founded by recipients of mental health services in the Albuquerque area and was formerly known as Jeff Revels Albuquerque Drop-In Center.
The mission of the ACHR is to support people who live with mental health or co-occurring mental health and substance abuse challenges. Through peer support, in a safe environment, ACHR aims to help people experience positive life growth by focusing on hope, humor and personal responsibility.
ACHR was the first organization operated by and for people living with a mental health or a co-occurring diagnosis.
The sense of acceptance found at ACHR is the direct result of people in recovery reaching out to others. We strive to provide a stigma-free environment to promote acceptance and recovery.
Everyone has the ability to grow and change; therefore, if we relate to a person's potential, there is the possibility of calling forth greatness.
ACHR is a stand alone organization. Current funding sources are grants and private donations from corporations and individuals. The Albuquerque Center for Hope and Recovery has several volunteers that help keep the center open. Their service is invaluable and we could not keep our doors open without them. Thank you!
