                                          Help us to help those in or seeking recovery from Substance Use Disorder

There are over 800,000 in recovery in the state of Georgia, with close to half a million battling a Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and 22,000 checking into treatment every year. Addiction effects about 1 in 10 people and their families and loved ones.

Georgia Council for Recovery (GC4R) is a non-profit organization formed in 2001 to increase the impact of recovery in our communities through advocacy, education, training, and peer recovery support services. GC4R creates lasting solutions for people, programming, and practice within the substance use arena. GC4R also continues to grow awareness within communities and through public policy platforms to combat the discrimination faced by individuals and families confronted with substance use challenges and disorders.

The Georgia Council blends professionalism with grassroots passion. GC4R understands the value of empathy, compassion, and integrity to help individuals succeed in long-term recovery. The staff and leadership lead from a place of lived experience. They join together to create and execute strategies to help communities throughout Georgia where recovery is embraced, promoted, and then sustained.

Through model programming in the field, GC4R increases their reach by building a workforce of peers to provide recovery support services to the communities of Georgia, through Peer Counselor education and training, Recovery Communities infrastructure development, specific direct services, advocacy, and a Warm Line that provide support and direction to those needing assistance.

Help us to help others seeking or in recovery and partner with Georgia Council for Recovery to create a Georgia where recovery is promoted, valued and sustained in every town, city and county

Your donation at any amount – even $1 – enables us to provide critical recovery support services to individuals, families and communities suffering from substance use challenges and disorders.

Thank you for your generous support!
