We mobilize people like you to raise awareness, challenge misconceptions, and be out and proud in recovery. We know the only way to fight stigma is to expose people to the truth — recovery is possible, and recovery is REAL!

We change hearts and minds by sharing our community’s lived experiences through events, media, and public education.

Public Policy

Promoting pro-recovery policy is central to our mission. We believe that people with lived experience of behavioral health challenges and triumphs should be heard at every table where decisions are being made. Recovery is possible, and even probable, if we build a system that centers the needs of people with behavioral health issues.

Let your voice be heard

Voices of Recovery Summit

Our annual Voices of Recovery Summit convenes individuals, families, and treatment providers within the recovery community to discuss the most pressing needs in behavioral health. The summit is an opportunity to create community connections and energize stakeholders for the year ahead.


Our Annual

Recovery Advocacy Day

Recovery Advocacy Day (RAD) is the WRA’s annual citizen action event, where we bring together hundreds of people in the recovery community from across the state to engage their lawmakers in conversations about legislative changes that would improve our behavioral health system.

Harm Reduction

Overdose Prevention & Response

The WRA is offering FREE Overdose Prevention and Response Training to groups working to end overdose in their communities. Individuals who are interested in receiving the training are encouraged to attend an existing event.

Supporting Families in Recovery

Invitation to Change 

The CMC Foundation for Change's Invitation to Change Approach (ITC) is a comprehensive support framework rooted in science and compassion. It is tailored for the families and supporters of individuals dealing with substance use challenges. The WRA will offer this program through virtual support groups in the fall of 2024. 


The Future of Recovery

Leadership Assemblies

Leadership assemblies with peers play a pivotal role in directing the work of the Washington Recovery Alliance. By bringing together individuals with lived experience, these assemblies serve as a platform for collaborative decision-making, idea exchange, and strategic planning.


Through open dialogue and shared perspectives, peers in leadership assemblies contribute valuable insights that directly influence the direction and priorities of the WRA. This inclusive approach ensures that the voices of those directly impacted by substance use disorder are heard and integrated into the development of programs, advocacy efforts, and resource allocation. Ultimately, these assemblies empower peers to shape the WRA's initiatives, policies, and outreach in ways that best serve the recovery community and advance the WRA's mission.

Sharing Connections

Building Community

We support the greater recovery community throughout the state and beyond. The Washington Recovery Alliance is a community of individuals, groups, and coalitions working together to bring SUD and mental health priorities to the forefront. Contact us to find out how you can get involved and join our network.
