Each day in recovery is a step in the right direction

Recovery Advocates of America


Recovery Advocates of America is a 501C3 not for profit peer-based recovery program providing substance use interventions and navigation to resources for the treatment of substance use disorders (SUD). Our mission is to educate our community about SUD and reduce the stigma towards it, provide compassionate and professional treatment placement for those afflicted by SUD, and offer experienced aftercare support that leads to sustainable recovery from SUD. These disorders cause damage and trauma, not just in the substance user, but also in the lives of their loved ones. We provide tools and resources for the friends and family to begin their healing process and support a healthy living environment post treatment. Our goal is to make treatment services for SUD accessible to all and to provide a platform and network for those who strive for recovery to achieve it.


If you or a loved one struggles with the disease of addiction Recovery Advocates of America can help. Recovery Advocates knows the importance of bridging the gap between treatment and active recovery. We recognize addiction can be very complex and the treatment process difficult to navigate. We guide each person before, during and after the treatment process by providing services in order to increase the likelihood of a sustained recovery.

Our trained staff will treat every person with respect and keep all our services confidential. Recovery Advocates of America, Inc. provides a safe environment to rebuild lives through:

  • Recovery Support
  • Family Support
  • Interventions
  • Community Involvement
  • Recovery Coaching
  • Educational Workshops
  • Sober Transports
