Our Mission

Inspire of Carolina's focuses on the empowerment of individuals seeking long-term recovery from mind-altering substances and reoccurring mental illness.  Our organization is dedicated to organizing and mobilizing Americans in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs as well as mental illness, our families, friends, and allies into recovery community organizations and networks, to promote the right and resources to recover through advocacy, education and demonstrating the power and proof of long-term recovery.

 

What we do

  • Mobilize and organize to raise the profile of the organized recovery community and help more people find recovery by demonstrating that  Americans from all walks of life have found recovery and promote the widespread understanding that long-term recovery is a reality and a process that takes time and support.

  • Build the capacity of recovery community organizations to thrive and participate in local, state and national policy arenas, deliver peer recovery support services; and mobilize the local recovery community.

  • Address public policy to reduce the discrimination that keeps people from seeking recovery or moving on to better lives once they achieve it and support recovery-oriented policies and programs.

 

OUR GOALS

  • Laws and policies enable recovery, health, wellness and civic engagement for people affected by alcohol and other drugs.

  • Communities are organized and mobilized to address policies, practices, and perceptions of people affected by alcohol and other drugs as well as mental illness.

  • Individuals, families, and communities affected by alcohol and other drugs as well as mental illness have universal access to quality, effective care and support to achieve recovery, health, wellness, and civic engagement.

 

Our Core Beliefs
