The opioid epidemic has ravaged South Jersey and we can no longer remain silenced by misplaced shame. It is absolutely true that Atlantic County has the highest per-capita overdose death rate in the country. Not one of the over 3,000 counties in the United States has buried more than one out of every 1, 584 residents to overdose. Recovery Force is the credentialed organization by and for people affected by this epidemic and people recovering from it. We are a big tent and exclude no one, as we embrace multiple pathways to recovery. We are a united group comprised of the diverse larger recovery community, including people from 12-step fellowships, others utilizing medically-assisted recovery, individuals subscribing to recovery yoga or perhaps a harm-reduction pathway. We are a volunteer workforce providing services free of charge to our community. Many of us are paying it forward. Others are involved in our movement so their loved-one was not lost in vain. We are joined by family members and friends of people in or seeking recovery. We also are home to the hundreds of South Jersey families that lost a loved one to this epidemic. No community has made progress in solving its problems without citizens impacted mobilizing their forces and recovering out loud. Recovering Out Loud changes the culture of the community to one of hope, pride and acceptance.

This Is What We Do:
We seek to put an accurate face and voice on recovery, using individuals and families willing to offer their lives and stories as testimony that long-term recovery is a reality. Communicating the reality of long-term addiction and alcoholism recovery, the diverse pathways taken, to the culture as a whole, policymakers, the media, and local communities is an effort to replace the stereotype with new and more accurate points of reference.

These services are evidence-based interventions that are provided to people and families still struggling with, in treatment for or in recovery from a substance use disorder and, in some cases, in lieu of treatment. Further, in our effort to improve quality of life for all families impacted, the needs of those families who have lost a loved-one due to a substance use disorder are a special focus. Learn More.
