Recovery Alliance Initiative

brings together organizations and individuals committed to helping people achieve and sustain meaningful recovery. We do this by serving as a virtual center, sharing the work of these community partners, as well as providing a collaborative environment and tools to use in working together to create comprehensive resources and projects.

As we face new challenges in this time of uncertainty, we reached out to our members and community partners to compile a list of online/vitrual resources to share.  Please feel free to email Deborah Kopytowski [email protected] if you have any resources to add.  We will be updating this document frequently.

You are not alone. Take care, be safe, and let’s remember to work together!

Most of these meetings are on Zoom.  Zoom is a free application.  You can download the app and simply click on the provided links to join.  You can also dial-in via telephone to many meetings.  To learn more about Zoom, visit: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697  

Pro tip:  Mute your computer or phone when not speaking to avoid unnecessary background noise and unmute to speak!  There are tools to “raise your hand” and chats are generally enabled in the meetings as well.  Zoom is very easy to use – do not be intimidated – many of us are learning it.
