Once a resident, always a friend.
All current and former residents will always be members of our CooperRiis Community. In fact, many of our former residents have gone on to become valued professionals on our staff in a wide variety of capacities. Drawing on their lived experience, they provide a unique – and invaluable – perspective to current residents who are on their journey to recovery.

CooperRiis enabled me to access my potential. While working the program, CooperRiis helped me find self-love, respect, and empowerment in the middle of my journey. Because of this immense gift, I gained my life back. It gave me reason and purpose. One of those reasons was understanding that I was not alone. For that reason, I found meaning in assisting others who are navigating life challenged by mental health. These individuals are a constant inspiration to me by thriving each day in their unique recovery journeys.
