DCRCA provides support for people seeking wellness and recovery from the effects of substance use and/or mental health challenges in a safe and affirming environment. Individuals come together in their communities, receive one-to-one peer support, obtain information and life skills helpful to their individual path to wellness and recovery, and make a difference in the lives of others in recovery.
DCRCA is sensitive to the differences among ethnic, racial, and linguistic groups and has understanding and awareness of how people’s cultural backgrounds, beliefs, traditions, socioeconomic status, history, and other factors affect their needs and how they respond to services generally used to describe interventions or practices.
The DC Recovery Community Alliance (DCRCA) is an organization of people in long-term recovery, their friends, and their families, committed to victory over the stigma and suffering caused by alcohol and other drug isorders in Washington, DC. We believe in the vital roles of science, faith, and personal practice in this effort. We educate, advocate, celebrate, and serve to advance and sustain recovery for the entire community.
Nearly all of DCRCA’s recovery support services (RSS) providers are in long-term recovery. Our coaches are in continuous training to increase their knowledge base and share recovery life experiences and best practices.
