Faces & Voices of Recovery was founded by a group of recovery advocacy pioneers who believed in a world where the shame and stigma of addiction no longer exists. This vision is the cornerstone of the work we do everyday.
Our Impact in 2016:
In 2016, Faces & Voices of Recovery trained 100 Recovery Ambassadors on Recovery Messaging and the Science of Addiction and Recovery, developed a training curriculum and hosted a critical webinar series on the role of Recovery Support Providers in addressing Housing and Homelessness, provided technical assistance to 96 Recovery Community Organizations in order to help build the unified voice of organized recovery across America, and hosted a Leadership Academy for over 100 individuals from our Association of Recovery Community Organizations, which featured nationally recognized speakers and workshops.
Our advocates provided 6,125 actions through our advocacy action alerts, including countless messages to Congress in support of CARA and the 21st Century Cures Act. Both were signed into law in 2016. At our Annual Gala, we recognized outstanding individuals and organizations working hard to put a face and voice on recovery in their local communities in order to remove barriers for individuals and families.

"It is time that we who have harvested the fruits of recovery pay it forward with our time, our talents, and yes, our financial contributions. There is a point in all social movements where the true ownership of that movement is tested. The new recovery advocacy movement is at that point. The question is whether people in personal or family recovery will take ownership of the future of this movement by financially supporting the national organization that coordinates the day-to-day work of the recovery advocacy movement."
- William L. White, Author and Recovery Historian
"Faces & Voices is critically important. I have seen the good the it does first hand, in the halls of Washington as well as in the faces of so many people that it truly helps."
"I donate to Faces & Voices of Recovery because they are the national voice for the recovery community. Without them, we would lose this voice and the leadership they provide to local Recovery Community Organizations."
"I donate to and volunteered for Faces & Voices of Recovery because it reboots recovery for many who would completely fail otherwise.
Had we not formed, joined and assisted the recovery movement in the US, hundreds of thousands would have died by the wayside anonymous, alone and unaided."
"I have supported Faces & Voices as an advocate and as a donor because I believe it is the clear Voice of recovering people and has the capacity to strengthen the recovery and hope of impacted family members, including the children, thus saving families as well as addicted persons."
