Mission Statement

Friends of Recovery - New York (FOR-NY) is a statewide non-profit organization with a mission to demonstrate the power of recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction and the value that recovery brings to individuals, their loved ones, and to communities throughout the state.

Description

FOR-NY envisions a world in which recovery from addiction is both common & celebrated; a world in which the entire spectrum of effective prevention, treatment & recovery support services are available & accessible to all who may benefit from them. FOR-NY believes that everyone struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs can recover & reclaim a meaningful life & role in society. While there are many paths to recovery, adequate resources & support are necessary for sustained recovery. To that end, FOR-NY is working to 1) ensure that addiction is addressed as a public health issue, rather than a crime, 2) eliminate the barriers often faced by those seeking help, 3) develop non-punitive, nonjudgmental recovery service models, 4) advocate for a system that engages and supports individuals working to reclaim a meaningful life, 5) mandate that recovering individuals and their families are included at all levels of budget and policy development in the system.
