Since opening our doors of the new recovery community center (RCC) at the end of 2019, we at USARA – Price have established 6 different types of mutual aid groups to assist the individuals in Carbon County. Every individual is different: their stories, their beliefs, and their struggles are never the same. Therefore we believe that everyone’s pathway to recovery looks different and should be supported.
USARA offers one-on-one peer recovery coaching to provide support and guide participants toward achieving their goals and reintegration into the community as happy, productive members of society.
We have two full-time peer recovery coaches here in Price, Shirley Wayman and Mersades Morgan. Shirley has been a lifelong member of the Carbon County community. She understands the resources that are needed for those with substance use disorder in our community and has been working with individuals and families for over two years. Mersades is new to Carbon County but brings with her the knowledge of recovery and recovery management from other settings. Both women are in long-term recovery and are facilitators of recovery groups held at the Price RCC each week. The connections they’ve made thus far have been amazing.
USARA – Price invites anyone to come check out their new recovery community center at 91 E. Main Street and spread the word! We are all working together to find solutions and connect people to the resources they need to sustain their recovery for a lifetime.
Peer Recovery Coach
Mersades prides herself on her passion for helping others out of the hopelessness and depths of addiction. Prior to joining USARA, Mersades has experience working in an inpatient treatment facility where she was Head of Employee Experience and Lead Recovery Advocate working one-on-one with individuals. Mersades also facilitates a weekly Dharma Recovery group at USARA. Her goal is to advocate and empower those that have been affected by addiction. Mersades has a beautiful family of four that she cherishes and credits much of her success to their love and support.
