Advocate for Recovery

Consumer access, choice and protections.

Access to support and service means that recovery becomes an expectation and not just a possibility. People need options as well as the guidance to make informed choices, because one-size does not fit all and recovery is a person-driven and lifelong process. Moreover, individuals and affected family members seeking recovery have the right to consumer protections and services that are safe and free from stigma and shame.

Recovery Votes

Statistically, 1 in 10 Texans (2.8+ million) identify as being in recovery and 1 in 3 households in Texas (2.4+ million) are impacted by substance use issues. Together our voices can shaping fund, policy, and program development, but too often, we are not sure how to register to vote, how to find out who represents us or how to push forward our policy priorities.
