The Prevention Council
HELPING YOUTH NAVIGATE LIFE'S CHALLENGES
Research shows that young people are less likely to use substances when they receive consistent messages at home, at school, and in their communities. To that end, Prevention Council staff work in a wide range of venues – from schools and summer camps to courts and family homes. Our goal is not only to prevent experimentation by teens and pre-teens, but also to provide skills, guidance, and resources to adults who interact with young people.
NCADD believes that all people suffering from alcohol and drug abuse deserve the chance to be helped.
Faces and Voices of Recovery is another website loaded with all sorts of great reference materials and links. Some of the great material here will help with how we tell our stories. Recovery Messaging is very important and the linked document provides some very good starter information on the subject. Another great resource link from this organization is Many Faces 1 Voice where you can get information on the documentary The Anonymous People and other films and videos of personal stories, and you can share yours there as well as with us at RAISaratoga!
Friends of Recovery NY is comprised of NYS residents who are in long-term recovery from addiction, their families, friends and allies.

New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) is another great resource showing the state governments services for people in recovery and their families and friends, as well as information and services for organizations that provide Recovery Services.
Recovery Branches is a network of resources available to organizations and those in search of avenues for long-term recovery, providing paths to follow based on areas of interest: Music, art, poetry, writing, exercise, health, sports, spiritual growth…as the tree grows, new branches emerge.
