Recovery community organizations (RCOs) have emerged as important resources for engaging and supporting individuals and families in their recovery in a variety of ways, and they reflect strengths and assets of the communities in which they operate. This technical assistance (TA) package provides a brief history of RCOs and defines their characteristics. Grantees will learn what it takes to become a nationally recognized RCO and understand how creating successful partnerships with RCOs can help further recovery in their communities.
