Building a Solid Foundation for RecoveryOne Brick at a Time
Foundation for Recovery is an independent, non profit organization and the only peer-run Recovery Community Organization in the state of Nevada. At Foundation for Recovery, our mission is to promote the positive impact of addiction recovery in the community and the lives of individuals and families affected by the disease of addiction. Our programs, services and partnerships open pathways to recovery by removing social barriers and creating opportunities for those seeking recovery. We provide a variety of peer-based recovery support services and our organization is led and governed by people in recovery, family members, friends and allies.
Peer Recovery Support Services & Resources:
FFR offers a variety of Peer Recovery Support Services which are designed and delivered by people who, themselves, have experienced both substance use disorder and recovery. Peer support helps individuals and families find, reinforce, and strengthen long-term recovery and often works in tandem with treatment and mutual aid support and addresses a broad range of recovery needs, strengths, and options.
