Faces & Voices of Recovery Launches the Alliance for Recovery Centered Organizations

Washington, DC

ARCO (Association of Recovery Community Organizations), is the leading membership organization for recovery community organizations dedicated to promoting and supporting recovery from substance use disorder, announced its transformation into the Alliance for Recovery Centered Organizations during Faces & Voices’ annual Recovery Leadership Summit in June.

The decision to rebrand as the Alliance for Recovery Centered Organizations highlights the evolving needs of the recovery community, represents the increasing importance of collective action toward positive change, and reflects the collaborative efforts between Faces & Voices of Recovery and its members. This change will allow the Alliance to grow and create a bigger tent for diversified organizations and the people and communities they serve. This move will usher in advocates for policies and funding to develop and strengthen organizations led and governed by People with Lived Experience (PWLE) and their intersectional recovery and cultural identity needs.

ARCO, now known as the Alliance for Recovery Centered Organizations or the Alliance, will continue its long-running tradition of serving as a hub to exchange best practices, access training and technical assistance, and build relationships with other people invested in recovery. The newly formed Alliance will further empower recovery centered organizations to advance the collective goal of long-term recovery and wellness for all individuals affected by addiction.

“We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for the Alliance,” said Hannah Lowry, “by fostering collaboration and unifying our efforts, we can revolutionize the way recovery is perceived and supported in our communities. Together, we will create a brighter, more equitable future for all individuals, families, and communities seeking lasting recovery.”
