Help Our Neighbors Get Help: Paid Riders Needed

Recovery Rides is recruiting riders on Lopez Island to be on call one or more days a month to accompany a fellow islander to or from a treatment facility on the mainland. Riders will not drive. Clients are fully assessed by professionals.

As a rider you’ll be paid, and all expenses are covered. You’ll receive complete training, and phone support is available throughout your trip.

Please consider this important and rewarding opportunity to make a crucial difference in a fellow islander’s life and the life of our community.

For an islander suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, the decision to get help is the first step toward healing and recovery. It’s critical to get them that help without delay.
