At USARA, our volunteers are the foundation of our programs and day to day operations. Since our services are primarily developed and run by volunteers whose lives have been touched by substance use disorders in one way or another, volunteers are vital to our success and mission. USARA volunteers are primarily interested in giving back, enhancing their life skills and connecting with members of the recovery community.
