Increasing Recovery Consciousness: Grounding Systems in Recovery

Increasing Recovery Consciousness Thumbnail

Recovery from addiction happens in the community through interactions with people with lived experience. Single state agencies are the main, and often only, source of funding for recovery support services in many states. State and county agencies distribute funds designated for recovery support services. In a time on increasing need, those resources need to be used strategically and effectively. Using funds more strategically to build communities that are saturated with recovery-centered resources can achieve better recovery outcomes. To do so, organizations that are recovery-centered—that is, that center lived experience in policy and practice—need to be prioritized for funding.

This publication offers strategies for government agencies to build recovery-rich communities, using lived experience as the frame. The brief includes solutions that can be implemented over the short and long-term to maximize existing resources. The goal is to rapidly improve access to recovery support services at a time of rising demand and promote strategies that will have long-term, enduring impact.
