Our Board of Directors

The elected board members of Faces & Voices of Recovery are a voluntary group of leaders who serve the addiction recovery community. The board jointly oversee the activities of the organization, supports its membership, and the implementation of the strategic plan. The board is organized in terms of officers — Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. As a national organization led and governed by the recovery community, over 51% of our Board members are individuals in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and/or other drugs and bring their personal lived experience of recovery to guiding the organization.

We are also very fortunate to have a National Advisory Councicomposed of activists, musicians, actors, artists, comedians and other public figures who are dedicated to being Ambassadors of Faces & Voices of Recovery's mission.  They carry a strong and effective message of hope in recovery and each have made a significant impact on improving the public's perception of addiction and recovery through their own work in the United States and internationally.
