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


Happy Wednesday Friends! It's so exciting to be a part of our vibrant recovery community. Every day feels like a day to celebrate! Today let’s celebrate recovery by recognizing and honoring Tara Wilder!

Tara began her recovery journey over 4 years ago. She is a proud graduate of Grand County’s Felony Drug Court, and currently serves as a Peer Recovery Coach for USARA in Grand County, Utah. Tara is a powerful advocate for recovery. Her passion for recovery is demonstrated through her countless acts of service and professional, yet individualized approach with her peers. Tara is an integral component in USARA’s Peer Support movement, and has made significant contributions to the rural communities she serves.

Tara was recently recognized as “Utah State Recovery Ambassador” by the State of Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health for 2016! Attached is her story that was published in the 2015 DSAMH Annual Report. Tara was also selected as a keynote speaker at USARA’s 2016 “Rally for Recovery”.

Join us tonight for another Recovery Skills Training!

Tonight's session: Sustaining Long Term Recovery-Creating a Personal Mission Statement

Creating and managing a plan for "life in recovery" is one of the most vital, yet satisfying measures one can take throughout their recovery journey. It provides a sense of security, as well as personal empowerment. Yet, initiating a plan that works for you can be confusing and overwhelming.

Tonight's training provides unique concepts and techniques that work for any individual seeking to create a working plan of recovery management. Participants will also receive an overview of what a personal mission statement is, and how it serves as a effective tool in personal recovery management. Participants gain practical tools for implementation, as well as correlating strategies in goal setting.

If you haven't attended before, come check it out! There is no enrollment necessary, and there is no cost for attendance. Participants can start at anytime, as the training is revolving.

Where: USARA- 180 East 2100 South Suite 201
When: Every Tuesday 5-6:30 p.m.

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.”
