USARA’s mission is to celebrate, advocate, support and empower on behalf of drug and/or alcohol addiction recovery and Utah’s recovery community
USARA provides an educational and family support program that facilitates weekly meetings for family members and friends who have a loved one needing help and support for their substance use problem and recovery.
Peer support is getting help from someone who has been there. Peer recovery support services are services that are designed and delivered by people who, themselves, have experienced both substance use disorder and recovery.
Our Recovery Community Center is a place for people in long-term recovery, family members and friends. A place where we can create an atmosphere of hope, wellness and support for better living in Recovery!
NATIONAL RECOVERY DAY IN UTAH
USARA will host the 2017 National Recovery Day celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah, September 9, 2017. This is a free event that celebrates the success of people in recovery and provides valuable information about prevention, treatment and recovery support.
NERD-OUT FOR RECOVERY 2017
Each year, USARA collaborates with the Pride Center and participates in the Parade in an effort to spread the message of recovery to reduce barriers and the stigma surrounding addiction.
The ability to share your recovery story is an important piece of effective long term recovery. We invite you to attend our ongoing trainings on this topic.
CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE
USARA encourages every person in recovery to become an active member of the community and understand that elected officials represent every person in their designated state.
As a recovery community organization, our goal is simple: to enhance the quantity and quality of support available to people seeking and experiencing long-term recovery.
At the center of peer support, coaching, or mentoring, is a sense of greater empathy shared between the peers due to their personal understanding of what the other has been through.
SHARE YOUR STORY
By sharing your story, you share the possibilities of a better life and the empowerment accompanying recovery.
