Our Vision and Mission



We envision a community where substance use disorders and mental illnesses are understood and that ALL those seeking to recover from them - CAN without delay and WILL without fear or shame - and that lives of meaning, purpose and joy result from the long-term access to support and problem-solving resources made available through the work of Recovery Force of Atlantic County and the recovery community at-large.


Our mission is to unleash the power of lived experience to help people and their families to sustain long-term recovery by providing services or direct access to them, which satisfy  the multiple and complex unmet needs of those  seeking a meaningful life in the community following their initial attainment of recovery; and to establish a stigma-free community through education and advocacy so that families and their loved-ones can live, work and play like the survivors of any other medical condition. We strive  to enable LIFE AFTER ADDICTION and who knows what we need better than we who attained that
