COVID-19 Resources

People in recovery have overcome much adversity so in many ways they are uniquely prepared mentally and emotionally to cope with the difficulties they are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, what they are not used to in recovery is isolation and social distancing.

At Faces & Voices of Recovery, we are incredibly proud of the way the members of the Association of Recovery Community Organizations (ARCO) have stepped up to the challenge of keeping their peers engaged in recovery support services despite the countless obstacles they are facing.  We’ve spotlighted several ARCO members and their amazing efforts here.  Find an RCO near you and visit their websites to see what they're doing to provide virtual peer support here.

Below, you'll find additional resources our team has worked to compile.
