2021 state team applications are now closed.
The Recovery Advocacy Project is working to empower individuals passionate about recovery to apply to their state’s Organizing Team.
Your state Organizing Team is a team of equals that work with one another to listen to people in recovery (their family and supporters) in your state, identify unifying campaigns to rally around, and provide organizing tools, as well as guidance for community or legislative based solutions, towards those issues for the grassroots community to take action.
Who we are.
The Recovery Advocacy Project (RAP) is a network of people and organizations across the country advocating for addiction recovery policies. RAP is committed to giving people in recovery, family members, and supporters of recovery the grassroots organizing tools to think and act locally. RAP is working to build a visible and effective constituency in demand of community and public policy based solutions in response to America’s long standing addiction crisis.
Change happens from the ground up. Not from the top down. We’re committed to building communities and constituencies of consequence by empowering people to become advocates for what’s best in their own backyard.
Meet other like-minded community leaders. Learn new tools. Empower others in your community to make a difference. We believe in the power of community to force change.
Action speaks louder than words. Policy and decision makers respond to mobilized communities. The time to stand up for recovery is now.

Each year, hundreds of recovery advocates are selected to attend Mobilize Recovery, an annual convening to learn innovative strategies and tactics for grassroots organizing. You’ll connect with other recovery leaders and gain access to new tools to streamline your organizing and advocacy work.
Mobilize Recovery is an initiative of The Voices Project & Recovery Advocacy Project. Together, we partner with leading advocacy organizations to invest in recovery leaders like you.
