Get the tools and resources you need to work on two important Faces & Voices initiatives
- The Recovery Bill of Rights, a statement of the principle that all Americans have a right to recover from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. It was developed and adopted by Faces & Voices of Recovery‘s Board of Directors and has been endorsed by a broad alliance of national organizations.
- The Recovery Voices Count campaign, our nonpartisan civic engagement effort to mobilize the recovery community so that our voices can be heard in the local, state and national arenas.
You can use these tools in your local recovery advocacy campaigns as well!
The kit includes media outreach templates, event organizing “how-to” materials and many other resources. The Recovery Advocacy Toolkit is a “living document,” we will be updating it with new materials as we develop new campaigns and organizing strategies.

About the Recovery Advocacy Toolkit
Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI)
"We join Faces & Voices of Recovery in calling for policies that will make it possible for every American to recover from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. The Recovery Bill of Rights is a call to action for our elected officials and community leaders to break the cycle of addiction by empowering people who still need treatment and ending discriminatory policies that keep people in recovery from securing jobs and housing in order to create a healthy and just society. We encourage you to use this Toolkit to continue building strong recovery community organizations at the local, state and national levels to break the silence and share the promise of recovery."
Congressman Jim Ramstad (R-MN)
"As the recovery advocacy movement spreads geographically and grows in political sophistication, local recovery advocates are seeking guidance to assist them in their work. The Recovery Advocacy Toolkit provides a needed and valuable resource for such assistance. Faces & Voices of Recovery is to be commended for preparing and distributing this Toolkit. I highly recommend it."
