Recovery Coaches:

On-site peers are available to provide one-on-one unbiased support and assistance in navigating obstacles in your path to recovery.


Rides to Recovery:

The Rides to Recovery program is designed to help individuals who are in recovery from a substance use disorder (SUD), a mental health diagnosis, or both find transportation to social determinants of health locations such as school, recovery support groups, grocery shopping, work, or other recovery-based services. The Rides to Recovery program partners with the Volunteer Transportation Center.

Effective Monday March 25, 2024.

We require 72 business hours to process any Volunteer Driver ride request. We can no longer consider ride requests within 3 business days of your call.  

This ensures the efficient creation and delivery of individualized transportation support services to you and other members of our St. Lawrence County Recovery Community. Transportation options we may connect you with:

  • SLC Public Transit
  • The First Mile Last Mile program
  • Local Taxi Cabs (Massena and Ogdensburg)
  • Trailways Bus/ North Country Express
  • Gas Card Incentives for Friends/Family
  • Direct Rides with Volunteer Drivers


Program eligibility is determined by SUD/MHD status; distance between the 2 locations must be greater than 2 miles; late night and early morning trips (between 6pm – 6am) depend on Volunteer Driver availability; grocery/other shopping may be limited to 2x monthly; participants must complete a new member packet, sign consent forms and visit The Valley in Ogdensburg; staff require 7 days to process significant changes to transportation needs/plan (e.g times, dates, locations). High quality service may include or require Rider-In-Recovery Coaching at times, to support your progress and smooth functioning of the program. While our goal is to accommodate your needs, we cannot guarantee all your Volunteer Driver ride requests will be fulfilled.

Peer Training:

Seaway Valley Prevention Council is a best practice trainer with FOR-NY and offers peer professional foundational and continuing education recovery training.

The Valley is here to connect recovery support services to individuals, families, and the community.
