Friends Of Recovery for Community Empowerment
Support for Recovery from Addiction
Our Executive Director, Hank Arnold, was chosen to be a recovery ambassador of a stigma reduction campaign, “Georgia Recovers”. This is his short video about his story and how peer support helped his recovery. Recovery is real!
Coweta F.O.R.C.E. exists to provide recovery support services in the community for individuals and family members impacted by addiction.
We envision a community that embraces recovery so that everyone has the opportunity to experience freedom from addiction.
What is a Recovery Community Organization (RCO)?
Recovery Community Organizations are independent, non-profit organizations led and governed by people in recovery. While each organization may have a mission that addresses the particular needs and concerns of its local community, all focus on the following core purpose:
Education & Training
Advocacy & Activism
Recovery Community Organizations have been forming around our country and state over the past several years, bringing the successful stories of our neighbors getting well in our neighborhoods. This is the movement that is driving our communities to support the important work we are doing to stay well.
We have been a part of so many recovery stories since we started in 2018. Here is a snapshot of a few peers we had the opportunity to serve who have been a part of our recovery community here at Coweta FORCE.
