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.
Our focus is strength-based support for anyone in need. We provide one-on-one peer support, group meetings, and sober-social events to promote and enhance recovery support systems across Nevada.
Upgrade your skills with free courses and workshops developed for a range of audiences. Whether you’re a peer support specialist, employer, faith-leader, or clinician, we have something for you.
Organizing our communities and advocating for people and families impacted by addiction. It’s time we start seeing people with lived-experience as a resource, not a liability.
Our programs and initiatives span across Nevada, including urban, rural, and frontier communities. Our Recovery Community Centers provide warm and enriching spaces for anyone seeking support and a sense of community.
