The Derry Friendship Center

The mission of The Derry Friendship Center is to reduce the stigma associated with substance use and providing a safe space for peer based support for people in all stages of recovery.

All current and upcoming events can be found on our events page.



This page houses resources for our community and the veteran community. We hope that you can find the right resource for your situation.
