The purpose of this day is to recognize and lift up the power of Recovery in the lives of everyday Georgians and to say thank you to the bi-partisan support the Georgia Recovery Community receives from the General Assembly and our state Constitutional Officers.
We support initiatives that promote prevention & early intervention; increase opportunities and resources for treatment and support pro-recovery policies that increase the likelihood of sustained, long-term recovery. As Georgia’s policy-makers and leaders make decisions that affect all of us, they will see that RECOVERY IS REAL!

Who we are

We are a diverse group of local community members whose lives have been affected by addiction. We recognize the need for a more robust and organized way to support those seeking or in recovery, as well as the families negatively impacted by substance use.

Our First Step

We requested that the Georgia Council on Substance Abuse (GCSA) assist us in establishing a Recovery Community Organization (RCO) here in Bartow, similar to the one in Rome, Living Proof Recovery. They have enthusiastically agreed and held a Listening Session on April 25th, 2019 to gauge the community’s interest in bringing an RCO to Bartow. OVER 150 PLUS PEOPLE ATTENDED! We were encouraged by the grassroots support shown by the faith community (18 churches represented), judicial, medical, county and city governments, school systems, and families.
