Utah's Addiction Recovery Community Organization

USARA's mission is to celebrate, advocate, support and educate on behalf of drug and/or alcohol addiction recovery and Utah's recovery community. 

Our Call to Action:   "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. 

Join Utah's Recovery 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...
