What we Do

Recovery Alliance Initiative offers a space, both in person and virtual, to bring together individuals and organizations from all sectors of the community who are committed to helping people achieve and sustain meaningful recovery. By serving as a virtual hub, our website continues the work begun in Regional and State Summits by providing dynamic tools and a collaborative environment with which to work together to create projects for comprehensive resources, as well as the ability to share both the process and results with all in the recovery community.

      • Bring all sectors together for state and regional summits & community collaboratives for the purpose of exploring opportunities, collaborating on, and implementing solutions
      • Provide a virtual workspace for recovery projects to be carried out, needs addressed and results shared
      • Access to a recovery directory for professionals as well as individuals and families in need

Collective Impact

The Recovery Alliance Initiative understands that the issues surrounding SUD are complex and not easily solved. Recognizing the problem as such, we use the Collective Impact model.

John Kania & Mark Kramer first introduced the concept of the collective impact model in the Stanford Social Innovation Review in 2011 (Link below) and identified FIVE KEY ELEMENTS :

collective impact-common agenda

All participants have a common agenda for change including a shared understanding of the problem and a joint approach to solving it through agreed upon actions.

collective impact-shared-measurement

Collecting data and measuring results consistently across all the participants ensures shared measurement for alignment and accountability.

collective impact-mututal-activities

A plan of action that outlines and coordinates mutually reinforcing activities for each participant.

collective impact-communication

Open and continuous communication is needed across the many players to build trust, assure mutual objectives, and create common motivation.

collective impact-backbone

A backbone organisation(s) with staff and specific set of skills to serve the entire initiative and coordinate participating organisations and agencies.
