Recovery Changes Everything


Faces and Voices of Recovery is dedicated to organizing and mobilizing the over 23 million Americans in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, our families, friends and allies into recovery community organizations and networks, to promote the right and resources to recover through advocacy, education and demonstrating the power and proof of long-term recovery.



Faces & Voices of Recovery works hard to advocate for public policies and funding that support addiction recovery for all.


By uniting RCOs around the nation through ARCO, Faces & Voices of Recovery recognizes and supports all pathways of recovery.
