Interfaith Advisory Council

An advisory council of faith-leaders and people of faith in Nevada who are committed to addressing addiction in their communities and celebrating recovery.


Faith-Based Organizations are often the first place many individuals turn to when seeking help. In many communities, options for individuals and families struggling with mental health and substances is sparse. Their spiritual center might be the only resource they have. The Interfaith Advisory Council is comprised of faith leaders and people from Nevada’s diverse faith community. As a member of the council, you will help inform our programs and projects, ensuring their spiritual competence. Your involvement will also help our programs reach communities of faith across Nevada.

The Council meets quarterly but may create work groups and subcommittees that meet more frequently to work on specific projects and initiatives.


The Interfaith Advisory Council is an advisory council of Foundation for Recovery.

Each advisory council contains a minimum of 3 members and a maximum of 21 members. The council must appoint a council chair, vice chair, and secretary.

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.
