Foundation for Recovery is the only peer-run addiction Recovery Community Organizations (RCO) in Nevada. At FFR, we actively promote the positive impact of addiction recovery in the community, and works to create opportunities for those in recovery. Recovery community organizations (RCOs) are the heart and soul of the recovery movement. In the last ten years, RCOs have proliferated throughout the US. They are demonstrating leadership in their towns, cities and states as well as on the national landscape. They have become major hubs for recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carrying out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and becoming players in systems change initiatives.
We provide peer-based recovery support service. As an RCO, we share a recovery vision, authenticity of voice and are independent, serving as a bridge between diverse communities of recovery, the addiction treatment community, governmental agencies, the criminal justice system, the larger network of health and human services providers and systems and the broader recovery support resources of the extended community. We work hard to provide opportunities for people and their families to acheive long-term recovery from addiction and/or other mental health challenges.
The Foundation for Recovery will promote the positive impact of addiction recovery in the community and the lives of individuals and families affected by the disease of addiction. We work to foster a safe and supportive environment for providing peer-centered education, enrichment and engagement. Our programs, services, and partnerships will open pathways for recovery by removing social barriers and creating opportunities for those seeking and maintaining recovery.
Our vision is that every layer of society is aware that addiction is a treatable disease, and that individual and family recovery is a sought-after means for achieving a balanced and healthy life. Foundation for Recovery will prepare and organize current and future educators, healthcare professionals, policy makers and the general public to see this vision become a reality.
