Help Build a Supportive Network for Recovery
Recovery Alliance Duluth formed when a small group of community members came together to address the need for peer-based recovery support. They combined their collective experiences and knowledge in order to serve the continuum of individuals and families who experience substance use disorder in this region.
We need community support to have a lasting impact and transform our region for individuals and families dealing with Substance Use Disorder.
Donate to RAD
You can help fund staffing and resources to aid individuals in recovery, and support RAD events and community outreach efforts to reduce the stigma and shame around substance use. Choose your amount, and make a donation in your name, anonymously, or in honor of a loved one. Support RAD and help change the story for people experiencing substance use disorder in our region.
Lend Your Voice
We live in a society where millions of people are dependent on drugs or alcohol, yet only a fraction receive help. Connect with and empower people with Substance Use Disorder to share their experiences in a supportive community. Join us in eliminating barriers, and making recovery accessible for everyone.
Become a Peer Recovery Specialist
Peer Recovery Specialists have personally experienced and lived with addiction. They are committed to their own recovery and use a strength-based approach to help a person become ready and willing to explore their options for healing. The peer is not a sponsor or a therapist, but rather a role model, mentor, advocate, and motivator.
RAD Peer Recovery Specialist Training is required to learn the essential skills involved in providing support for individuals in recovery. The 46-hour curriculum satisfies the educational requirements necessary to take the Certified Peer Recovery Specialist Examination in Minnesota. A passing score on this exam earns the credentials necessary to seek employment as a Peer Recovery Specialist in a setting that provides recovery support as a reimbursable service.
If you are interested in participating in this training, please contact the RAD office.
