NC Community Recovery Advocacy Day

NC CRAD 2016

Having found our voices, we are taking back our stories.

This is our day to celebrate recovery and educate policy makers. Join us.

The day will begin with a town hall style gathering, featuring speakers from around the state. These speakers should represent multiple pathways to individual, family, and ally recovery. If you are interested in speaking or nominating a speaker, please send the following information no later than April 4th to

  • Name of Person

  • Recovery Pathway (Abstinence; Peer Recovery Mutual Aid; Religious; MAT; loved one in recovery, needs recovery, or deceased; Service Provider; Employer; Landlord; etc.)
  • Reason this person should be on the agenda



  • The recovery community wants to become a resource for The North Carolina General Assembly as they consider solutions to problems around access to treatment and/or recovery supports necessary for sustained recovery from alcohol and other drug problems.
  • Our stories will provide policy makers with the proof that when folks living with alcohol and other drug problems get well, the entire community benefits.
  • The combined experience of our community will reveal to legislators the obstacles many face when attempting to initiate or sustain recovery.
