As a state, it is time we all face the problem of addiction in North Dakota. It is time we support each other with compassion, rather than judgment. It is time we reinvent recovery. You can help.

Become a peer support specialist
Peer Support Specialists are individuals with similar first- hand, lived experience and demographic identifiers as the individuals they are serving. Peer Support Specialists use their experience to support others in their recovery, serve as a pro-social model, provide information, guidance and advice, establish good rapport, and offer insight to the participant’s care team.
Training may be available through the ND Department of Human Services to counsel peers in recovery.
Become a recovery community organization
RCOs are dedicated recovery advocates working to change perceptions, policies and laws to improve the lives of those in the recovery community. All local, regional and state organizations that are led and governed by the addiction recovery community (people in recovery and their families, friends and allies) are welcome to join.
