Nevada's Recovery Community

Find your community. Foundation for Recovery is Nevada’s statewide Recovery Community Organization – a community nonprofit led by volunteers and staff in recovery from mental health and substance use disorders. Together we support people and families struggling and create a sense of community among those of us with lived-experience. We focus on our strengths, not our illness.

Last year, nearly 30,000 people attended mutual-aid and support groups at our Recovery Community Centers.

Person-Directed Recovery

Person-centered recovery is directed, as much as possible by the person – including decisions about who should be included in the process.  The planning identifies just a few small, but meaningful, short-term changes that the individual can focus on helping to reduce some of the barriers or challenges moving forward.  Person centered care should be central to all recovery frameworks.
