We envision a world where all people affected by the impact of addiction can proudly and openly seek help, help each other and demonstrate the living proof that recovery is possible.


To provide opportunities for individuals, families and communities affected by addiction and related problems to recover and achieve meaningful, satisfying and contributing lives. To provide models of practice for family support, consumer participation and peer based recovery support; and influence practice in the field of addiction and other related health domains.
