Building a brighter future for Texans in recovery

Core to all our work is  leveraging the power and potential of peers – people with personal, lived recovery experience. Our work focuses on key areas we believe are central to a successful community of recovery.


In celebration of National Recovery Month, RecoveryPeople hosts a film premiere and fundraising event on September 19, 2024 that spotlights five persons in recovery who have used their lived experience to make a difference for other Texans.
