Recovery Leadership Summit!

On June 15th and 16th Faces & Voices hosted the annual Recovery Leadership Summit. And while it may have looked a bit different this year, due to the event going virtual, it was an amazing success because of all of you!

Featuring 5 separate learning tracks with 30 sessions, 6 keynotes, and countless activities, the summit was attended by nearly 356 individuals from around the globe.

Thanks for all who attended and hope to see everyone next year!

The National Recovery Institute offers competency and strength-based professional development and leadership training specific to the recovery field.

Although the travel for trainings has been taking us to our home offices instead of onsite, NRI has still managed to provide technical assistance to folks in Indiana, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Florida! Can we add your state to our list?!

To learn more about our available trainings contact us at NRI@facesandvoicesofrecovery.org

The Council on Accreditation of Peer Recovery Support Services (CAPRSS) at Faces & Voices of Recovery works to identify and support excellence in the delivery of peer recovery support services and other activities by recovery community organizations (RCOs).

We are excited to announce that there are seven new Candidates for CAPRSS accreditation this quarter.  Although the national pandemic has directly effected CAPRSS site visits, our team has been working to build out a plan to move forward and protect the health and safety of the site reviewers and accreditation candidates.

Any questions on how to get your organization accredited? Please contact info@caprss.org

The Association of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO) at Faces & Voices of Recovery unites and supports the growing network of local, regional and statewide recovery community organizations (RCOs).

Faces & Voices has recently welcomed 16 new ARCO members, and 14 ARCO members have been renewed.

We stand in solidarity with all of our ARCO members, advocating for securing and expanding funding for vital community-based recovery support services. View our 2020 legislative priorities and stay tuned – we are in discussion for planning a fall 2020 hill day for you.

The Recovery Data Platform (RDP) is a cloud-based software solution developed and managed by Faces & Voices of Recovery. RDP aids RCOs and Peer Service Providers with the tools and assessments needed to effectively implement, document, and evaluate peer recovery coaching programs.

In Q2, our team deployed the RDP mobile app companion, and has revamped the tools for documenting and tracking referrals!
