Recovery Community

RecoveryPeople engages, empowers and educates the recovery community, which includes:


Individuals and affected family members. "Family" is broadly defined, including family of choice, kith and kin.


Direct support staff, supervisors, administrators, students, instructors and training entities


Organizations that provide recovery support services (e.g. recovery housing and community centers)


Persons with lived experience are uniquely qualified to develop, design and deliver supports and services to address the needs of individuals and family members affected by substance use. They have been doing so since at least the mid-1800s. As a result, consumers, workers and providers are much more intertwined in the recovery support and services marketplace compared to other segments. For these reasons, RecoveryPeople focuses on all three.
