Faces & Voices of Recovery is the nation's leading recovery advocacy organization promoting policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.

Our supporters are individuals who believe that by eliminating stigma and discrimination and removing barriers to recovery more Americans will lead healthy lives in long-term recovery. Together we advance policies that reduce discrimination, and seek solutions that promote access to the treatment and recovery support services necessary to live a life in recovery. We work to ensure that Federal and State policies reflect the hope and resilience found in communities of recovery working to help others through a comprehensive approach to solving the addiction crisis in America.

Faces & Voices of Recovery was founded in 2001 at a Summit in St. Paul, Minnesota, the culmination of more than two years of work to provide focus for a growing advocacy force among people in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, their families, friends and allies.

Since then, the addiction recovery movement has exploded – in the US and around the globe.


As the nation's leading grassroots recovery advocacy organization, Faces & Voices has become a model for numerous international recovery advocacy movements.
