Welcome. Join our cause.

We educate, advocate and create a safe and empowering environment that supports the dignity and value of what’s right and what’s working with individuals, communities and systems!

We are guided by the belief, value and principle that through many pathways of self-directed care, recovery is possible for everyone. We nurture hope by supporting others with empathy, compassion and integrity!

As a result, we facilitate connections and conversations among people combatting the discrimination faced by people & families confronted with substance use challenges and disorders. We do this to save lives and bring hope, joy and happiness and to create a world where recovery is promoted, valued and sustained!
