Minnesota Recovery Connection builds Recovery Capital in individuals, families and communities.

Who We Are

Minnesota Recovery Connection is a Recovery Community Organization (RCO), led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery. We honor all pathways to recovery and are not a treatment provider. Rather, we exist to fill gaps in systems of care, connecting people to support and services that help make long-term recovery from substance use disorder possible. We do this by providing peer-to-peer recovery support services, public education, and advocacy.

We believe that self-efficacy, parity, equity, and compassion are critical to recovery. Through our public policy work and events such as Recovery Day on the Hill, the Recovery Advocacy Seminar, and other activities, we strive to elevate recovery voices.


March 14 is Recovery Day on the Hill

Minnesota Recovery Connection envisions a world where recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs is understood, promoted, embraced, and enjoyed.

MRC's Vision

Minnesota Recovery Connection works to ensure that all who seek it have access to the support, care, and resources they need to achieve long-term recovery from substance use disorder. We envision a recovery-oriented society. A society where everyone understands that substance use disorder is a medical condition and people do recover. A society where choosing recovery means rejecting shame, stigma, and discrimination. A society where people in recovery live life fully.
