Afiya (a part of the Western Mass Recovery Learning Community) is the first peer respite in Massachusetts (and one of only about 18 in the country).  Based in Northampton, Afiya offers a homelike environment where people can stay for up to seven days as an alternative to hospitalization.

Centered around peer-to-peer support, the focus is on providing a safe space in which each person can find the balance and support needed to turn what is so often referred to as a ‘crisis’ into a learning and growth opportunity.
