Recovery Advocates of America is a 501C3 not for profit peer to peer center that strives to provide education around the disease of addiction, tools to sustain recovery through engagement, and reduce the stigma of addiction within our community. Our center is instrumental in our community in providing all people suffering from the disease of addiction a safe haven to get treatment options and support through all stages of their recovery. As addiction is classified as a family disease, in addition to helping the addict, we also provide tools and resources for the family in order to best recover through their own journey. Recovery Advocates of America offers crisis interventions for both the addict and the family, support meetings and 12 step introductions, and family programs to keep addicts and families engaged. Our mission is to provide a platform and network for those who strive for recovery to achieve continuous, sustainable recovery.
