The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (IDHS/SUPR) recently released their Recovery Wrap-Up 2021 report in their monthly newsletter. According to the newsletter, IDHS/SUPR rapidly grew its recovery efforts in 2021 bringing on three new national programs: Recovery Corps, Faces of Recovery, and Oxford House, Inc.
Of the three programs, Faces and Voices of Recovery is dedicated to organizing and mobilizing the over 23 million Americans in recovery from substance use, their families, friends, and allies into recovery community organizations (RCO) and networks. They promote the right and resources to recovery through advocacy, education and demonstrating the power and proof of long-term recovery.
Since July, they have been meeting with agencies across the state to help in building RCOs, as well as providing trainings on Recovery Messaging, The Science of Addiction and Recovery and RCOs.
IDHS/SUPR is pleased to support two new RCOs in January 2022- Take Action Today and Sauk Valley Voices of Recovery.
