Originally founded by Carroll and Joe Petersen, Recovery Resources has long been an anchor of the Eastern Shore. After 40 years of professionally working in the field, the Petersens discovered those afflicted and affected by addiction and other dysfunctional issues wanted help but did not always need full inpatient treatment. The Codependency Workshop became their vision to provide services to these people.

They passed the torch to their son Jim, who has more than 25 years of professional experience working in the field of behavioral health. His perspective has been heavily influenced by many pioneers in the field of addiction and mental health: John Bradshaw, Patrick Carnes, Claudia Black, Terrance Gorski, and Pia Mellody. His philosophical and spiritual perspective has been heavily influenced by the 12-Step fellowship. He is a passionate force in the support of healing, hope, and sustainable recovery.
