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.

Connect to recovery support:

Whether you are seeking support for yourself, a family member or a friend, we have free resources to help you take the next step in your recovery journey. Our team has personal experience with substance use disorders and recovery, and we’re here to help. 

Learn about recovery:

Substance use disorders and recovery are often misunderstood, stigmatized, or misrepresented. Check out our educational resources and programs and learn about the many faces of recovery and its multiple pathways. There is no wrong door to recovery!

Be a recovery ambassador:

Recovery is contagious. Help us spread recovery and break the stigma of addiction by being a recovery ambassador. From using non-stigmatizing language to advocating for parity in our systems of care, you can help create a recovery-oriented society. 

Our mission and vision:

Our mission is to strengthen the recovery community through peer-to-peer support services, public education, and advocacy. 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.

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