 Happy New Year!

We made it through 2020 and have seen how organizations like yours have adapted to continue providing excellent services to those that need them. We have adapted as well, providing Virtual Site Visits to organizations going through CAPRSS Accreditation and the experience has been tremendously positive! We have completed many Virtual Site Visits in 2020 and have more to come this year.

Here’s to 2021 being a great year.

Resources just for you!

Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) and other peer programs are more productive as a recovery community and more supportive as a recovery space when they strive to meet folks where they’re at. Begin by creating an environment where participation is natural, enthusiastic, non-threatening — a culture where social roles within a community begin to emerge. We have designed this Tip Sheet specifically for you to understand some of the key characteristics of a participatory process and integrate it into your organization.

Here’s a Tip sheet that speaks to the Participatory Process.

Participatory Process Tip Sheet

Tis the Season to Give!

Faces & Voices of Recovery was founded by a group of recovery advocacy pioneers who believed in a world where the shame and stigma of substance use disorders no longer exists. They believed in a world where a lifetime of recovery was within everyone’s reach. This vision is the cornerstone of the work we do everyday.
