Recovery Local

Recovery Local is dedicated to providing resources and information to all those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

Recovery Local is an organization dedicated to furthering addiction awareness in order to promote easier access to recovery for those in need. Our staff is comprised of dedicated recovered addicts and alcoholics who know what it’s like to be in the depths of addiction. We were granted the opportunity to experience the gifts of recovery on a daily basis. We are passionate about breaking the stigmas and stereotypes that contribute to the negative and condemning atmosphere surrounding addiction.

It is no secret that the mental health of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) is disproportionately affected compared to that of their white counterparts. According to Mental Health America, 17% of Black people and 23% of Native Americans live with a mental illness. People who identify as two or more races are more likely to report mental illness than any other racial or ethnic group. This is because, along with the internal struggles and trauma that many people face, BIPOC must also withstand racial injustices that intersect every facet of their lives. These hardships that fall on entire communities have detrimental effects on mental health and contribute to increased anxiety, depression, and stress.
