The Idaho Community Pilot Project

In cooperation with our national partner, Facing Addiction, the Recovery Community Centers of Idaho invite you to join us as we explore opportunities for leadership, advocacy, and purpose to promote awareness of the devastating impact that addiction continues to make throughout Idaho.

To help bring the best kind of success for Idaho’s recovery movement, we will focus our efforts on training and fortifying our army of recovery advocates and volunteers from the following groups:


• Recovery Advocates (YOU!)
• Affected Families
• Prevention Leaders
• Law Enforcement
• Faith Leaders
• Business Community
• Treatment Providers
• Medical Community
• Youth Services

The Opioid Crisis has become a national emergency in our country. It is no less of an emergency here in Idaho, especially for our family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who are currently struggling with addiction.

 

On behalf of the more than 5,000 people who visited Recovery Community Centers of Idaho last month alone, THANK YOU for connecting with our mission and vision for tackling the Opioid Crisis here in Idaho.
