The Courage Center receives Building Communities of Recovery (BCOR) grant

Lexington, SC 09/16/2021 - The Courage Center (TCC) was the only South Carolina organization to be awarded the Building Communities of Recovery (BCOR) grant by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). TCC was one of 31 nationwide recipients.


The purpose of the grant is to mobilize resources inside and outside of the recovery community to increase both the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery support from substance abuse and addiction.


The grant is intended to support the development, enhancement, expansion, and delivery of recovery support services (RSS) as well as promotion of, and education about recovery.

During the three year duration of the grant, TCC will work to improve long-term recovery for residents of Lexington County. TCC will provide services including individualized recovery programs and sustained support for recovery-focused community efforts that reduce the stigma associated with drug/alcohol addiction through a stigma reduction campaign and by conducting public education and outreach.

“We are excited to launch this grant, especially during September and National Recovery Month.” said Interim Executive Director, Dr. Pam Imm. “The Courage Center has been providing services in the Midlands for more than five years and this funding will allow us to continue and expand programming, providing further linkages between treatment and community support. We will also be highlighting the stories of individuals in recovery as they share the journey they took to get where they are today.”
