Join the Movement

USARA and Utah's Recovery Community are in need of passionate and dedicated recovery leaders to help sustain the recovery movement and drive it forward. Our goal is to reduce barriers and the stigma surrounding addiction that people in recovery face every day. We strongly believe that every recovery voice counts and anyone related to the recovery community can be an advocate for change. Together we can create a positive conversation around addiction and recovery throughout the state of Utah. Join the movement...

If you have found recovery, consider giving the community your story as an instrument of hope and healing. If you have been blessed by resources that helped you find and sustain recovery, then join the fight to expand resources for those still suffering."

- William L. White

"At rock bottom I had totally given up on any semblance of a normal life. All I knew was I couldn't stand to draw a sober breath. 13 months of inpatient treatment and drug court gave me a chance to start to believe that maybe, just maybe, recovery was possible for me. It was NEVER easy, and some days I had no idea how I would make it through another one, but I never gave up. 4 years later I have an amazing job that enables me to support my family as a single mom, I am raising 2 incredible little girls, and I even just bought a house, but more importantly, by the grace of God I am sober, and that is a MIRACLE!" --Tami Close Toleman #NotAnonymous #WeCanRecover

" I used Meth for many years and didn't care about myself & others until I had children and I tried to change. I didn't want to use drugs around my kids and I decided to go get help. Today, I have four years in recovery after 24 years of hell. I work a twelve-step program and try to give back and also to love myself again. I am deaf and serve in recovery meetings to help others." --Joseph Nelson, Utah. #UtahRecoveryCommunity #OurStoriesHavePower #NationalRecoveryMovement ... See MoreSee Less

Today it's all about celebrating Mr. Eric Nyberg! Here is his recovery story in his own words: "I lost everything due to drugs and alcohol. I was homeless holding a cardboard sign, living in my car, and unemployable. I got sober 9/10/13 and now I have a drivers license, a car that's insured, and I've maintained a job that I love. I began painting and my art has been exhibited in several galleries in the U.S. I'm now a productive member of society and helping others to find recovery, too." Thanks for speaking out and sharing your story Eric! #OurStoriesHavePower #NotAnonymous #NationalRecoveryMovement ... See MoreSee Less

USARA changed my life

Not sure where our family would be today without USARA. In early 2014 I discovered the family support group at USARA and changed my life, we no longer felt alone and isolated. There I found out that before I could help my daughter who struggled with a substance use disorder for several years I needed to take care of me – and that was okay.”
