Upper Room Recovery Community

Addiction recovery support in South Bend.

Upper Room Recovery Communities is a temporary supportive home for people who are in recovery from addiction.

The Upper Room is a second step in addiction recovery. If you need immediate help with addiction recovery click below.

Adjusting to life in sobriety is hard. It is even harder when the only place you have is the place that enabled your addiction, or when you have no place to go at all. Recovery takes root in places of safety and community. In a home that supports your sobriety.

When you need it most, the Upper Room is home.

Recovery Is The Work Of A Village

No one gets better alone, it takes friends, family, sponsors, networks, organizations and even strangers. Our work is the same. We would not be able to do what we do and help who we help without the support of our community. If the words of recovery are written on your heart, please join us.

Upper Room Recovery Community is a proud partner with the United Way of St. Joseph County.


For me, I really needed time away from my old environment. I needed a place where people are in recovery and are serious about their recovery, a place where I could fit in and give my newly-found recovery a solid foundation.


I’m finally getting better. I'm moving forward.


Life is so much better. I had no idea the sweet life I could have.


My alcoholism was so out of control and so was my life. I had a loss of trust with people who cared about me. It’s devastating. How do you regain that trust?


I came here because of word of mouth about Upper Room. I’ve known about God most of my life, but I did not KNOW God.


I've learned a lot about myself through this process. My character has changed. It's not easy, but with help, I know I can do it. It is God's will, not mine.


The disease is arrested, not destroyed. Each day you have to decide whether you’re going to live or die – because it will kill you.


When you’re in the midst of addiction, you’re also in the midst of loneliness and isolation. It’s hard to shake off. Your defense mechanisms are like a coat that you put on.
