JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce recently helped celebrate the grand opening of the Rob Constantine Recovery Community and Outreach Center, a program of the HFM Prevention Council, according to a news release.

The center, located at 86 Briggs St., Suite 6, offers community-based peer recovery and support to help prevent relapse and sustain long-term recovery.

Included in the center is a meeting location, substance-free social functions, prevention, and resource/referrals for services in the region.

The center focuses on building the recovery community, and providing a positive outlook for people seeking help with addiction and throughout the recovery process, the news release said.
