Who We Are


Friends of Recovery Foundation, Inc. 

Our Mission Is Meetings

Main meeting room at Recovery Central 
1305 W. Markham St.
Little Rock, AR  72201

  • Mission - our mission is accomplished by providing a centralized facility available to any 12-step recovery group, no matter their specific affiliation (e.g., AA, NA, CA, Al-Anon, Nar-Anon) which can be used for regularly scheduled weekly meetings, special functions, and events that are recovery related.  
  • Recovery Central - the name of our facility. Located in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas, we are within 30 minutes driving distance from Benton, North Little Rock, Conway, Cabot, Maumelle, and Jacksonville. Pine Bluff is approximately 45 minutes and Hot Springs is about an hour away. 

How You Can Help


Since we opened the doors for the first 12-step meeting  in 1992, all efforts to carry out the mission of the organization have been performed by volunteers, including the managing Board of Directors. Most volunteers also have "day" jobs, families, other social commitments and responsibilities. We all know what a precious commodity time is, though, which is why it is truly a testament to the dedication and commitment to our mission that we are still here to open the doors of Recovery Central after nearly 30 years! 

We are fortunate to have a variety of skilled members who freely give of themselves to ensure Recovery Central operates successfully.  To give you an idea of the skills and qualifications our members have contributed over the years

The groups that meet at Recovery Central are not required to pay rent, enabling them to focus on their recovery. However, the priniciples of all 12-step fellowships include the requirement to be self-supporting. Therefore, donations based on attendance are made when possible. 

All other funding for the maintenance and operation of Recovery Central comes from charitable donations, membership dues, and various fundraising activities.  
FOR membership is available to anyone interested in supporting our mission.
