Seattle’s Recovery Cafe started in 2004, but it moved to a larger space in 2009. “We are able to serve about 350 people per month,” said David Uhl, director of the Recovery Cafe Network. “We know that our members are reporting that they’re drinking less, having less encounters with the legal system, and are part of a community.”
