What Drives Us?
ROCovery Fitness, Inc. exists because of a community need to provide sober experiences and connections to other individuals working on recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The organization is made up of members who have personal experience with recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, have a sense of passion and service to give back to the community and are driven to make a difference to help combat current community trends. Research indicates the benefit of incorporating peer led, wellness initiatives into the recovery model of care as indicated by the Phoenix Multisport Program, located in Denver Colorado. ROCovery Fitness is implementing this concept in New York State.
Imagine walking through a life of despair, confusion and pain in the grips of addiction. Imagine running out of options, running out of hope, having no one to turn to, nowhere to go. Imagine a place committed to recovery and with a focus on exploring all the beauty life has to offer.
ROCovery Fitness IS a safe place among peers who have trudged this road of loss and have found a better way. A place where the impossible becomes reality, where strength is found and confidence is built. A place where those on the journey of recovery are welcome regardless of their past or present experiences. Imagine finding peace, support, and the gift of sober living. Imagine ROCovery Fitness.
We aide and provide opportunities for those in recovery to both reach their goals and surpass their expectations. To foster an environment where individuals do not have to watch people running past them, wondering what it would mean to be a part of mainstream life, rather they can live a life within the mainstream of running, cycling, climbing, being and living freely in society.
Our programming is also open to the families and loved ones that have been impacted by addiction and the recovery journey. All too often, families go down very difficult roads as a result of their loved ones’ addiction. ROCovery is a place of belonging, connectedness. We are a place of safety and recovery. We encourage all individuals to get busy living!

Attaining and maintaining sobriety alone is a tremendously difficulty challenge. There are a multitude of treatment centers and programs in the Rochester area. However, relapse does not usually happen when the individual is in the actual treatment setting or a 12-step meeting. Relapse happens when the person is left to his or her own devices without necessary skills to maintain a sober life. Free time becomes the enemy, ROCovery will be the alternative: we are not a treatment program rather a supportive environment aimed at strengthening one’s recovery. Individuals are taught to change “people, places, and things” while in treatment however, they are returning to unhealthy environments they do not know how to navigate, which can be a significant trigger for relapse. This is where ROCovery comes in. ROCovery aims to establish a community where sober living is the norm; there are no limitations to a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. We aim to recreate a social network surrounding enriching, physically engaging, and fun activities and an atmosphere where people will gather together to help and motivate each other through their journey. We seek to help our members develop, strengthen, and maintain the support they need to live sober through the engagement of a healthy social network of their peers focused on recovery.
