Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
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.
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.
