Congrats USARA!

USARA’s (Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness) mission is to connect and inspire communities to advocate for addiction recovery. We envision a Utah where recovery community and connection are recognized as the most valuable assets for people to recover from addiction. Since its founding in 2006, USARA has served thousands of individuals recovering from the effects of substance use disorders on the person, families, and the community. Recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, USARA is Utah’s premier recovery community organization.
A Notice on Virtual Site Visits

Due to COVID-19 all previously accredited organizations who were up for reaccreditation have had their term extended. With positive feedback from both organizations and site reviewers we continue to offer virtual site visits across the board – including reaccreditation.

Congratulations to FAVOR Greenville on Reaccreditation!
