A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery.
These organizations organize recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and/or provide peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS).
“First Coast Recovery Advocates (FCRA) strives to end stigma surrounding substance abuse and support multiple pathways towards recovery”.
We envision a world where all individuals have equal access to the pathways of Recovery.
We celebrate the unique differences in all individuals and recognize their unwavering right to be treated with respect, dignity, fairness and equality as they are assisted.
We are committed to building effective and harmonious relationships and connections to resources in order to achieve our mutual objective of assistance to those impacted by addiction.
We will strive to be effective change agents for those in recovery and those effected to overcome the stigma and barriers that impact opportunities for growth.
We view change as an exciting opportunity and embrace opportunities to acquire new knowledge and skills to educate our communities and surrounding areas on topics involving addiction.
