In 1987, the Salisbury Substance Abuse Community Center (SSACC) began as the brainchild of individuals who were in recovery themselves. In March 1990, the center opened its doors as "The Twelve Steps".

In 2016, a new Strategic Plan was adopted. The Salisbury Substance Abuse Community Center (SSACC) became the Recovery Resource Center (RRC), better reflecting our mission- "To facilitate and support people on their journey through Recovery."

We currently host over 40 meetings, sponsored by seven 12-Step Fellowships, serving approximately 1,000 people per week.  Meetings at Salisbury's RRC are open to all who seek recovery, without fear of a paper trail. We provide support to those learning how to rebuild their lives, restore their families, and take their rightful place as contributing members of our community.

Since 1996, as a member of the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore, we receive funding, training and support for our staff.  We also receive support, funding and training from The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore, as a fully incorporated non-profit corporation.
