RC After Dark was created and developed by Bill Brown and Amanda Stoddard to provide peer support for young adults.


What started as an idea to gather people together through fun events led to a community coming together to help their personal mental health recovery.

What is Recovery Center After Dark

In short, RC After Dark is an after-hours event series designed with transitional aged youth in mind (ages 18-35). Often times within these age groups support is either lacking, inaccessible, or within a timeframe that isn't sustainable when you work or go to school full-time. It is our hope that with RC After Dark we can help change the mental health model to be accessible for those who may need some after-hours peer support and community. 

RC After Dark provides a space where individuals can meet peers who need connection within their community and we do this through fun, engaging, and supportive eventsWe believe that through community we can all find healing.

"That was really my intention, to give people after-hours accessibility to help that isn't so black and white, that is still fun and not so much pressure."

Amanda Stoddard, Events Coordinator.

Our Writing for Healing Workshop is just that, a writing workshop designed to help you heal! Our goal through this event is to help people heal from their life experiences, celebrate the beauty of writing as a means of processing, and come together for peer support. We only ask that you share if you're comfortable, it's never a requirement. 

The event starts with an introduction about our organization, RC After Dark, and our guests. We then go into the science behind why writing is beneficial for the healing process. Afterward, we present a prompt that is meant to invoke emotion and then we write for 15 minutes. Once the time is up we have a check-in with how we feel and then share our work and give feedback.

Our events are specifically curated for ages 18 - 30 but anyone over 18 is welcome to attend these workshops. 

*Please be aware that topics of discussion may be intense so this event is only suitable for ages 18+.*
