IMPACT Alliance of South Atlanta, Inc.
What is a Recovery Community Organization?
A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. These organizations execute recovery-focused policy advocacy activities, carry out recovery-focused community education and outreach programs, and provide peer-based recovery support services (P-BRSS).
Recovery Community Organizations (RCO) are developing across the country at the local level to address the needs of people in or seeking recovery. We know that when recovery organizes in reaching out to others, recovery expands and grows.
To provide an enriching environment to empower peers who seek long-term recovery through self-directed pathways emphasizing individual experiences, strengths, hopes, and resilience; positively impacting individuals, families, and communities.
To I.M.P.A.C.T. the recovery community and all communities nationwide by manifesting an Inspired Mission of Peer Advocacy for Community Transformation.
