We believe the opposite of addiction is connection, therefore we value the concept of "community." As a grassroots organization we work to bring connection to our community in relation to addiction recovery to create a community that understands, values, and supports recovery. We use a "Participatory Process" to ensure that all voices, feedback, and efforts are valued. Together, we can fight substance-use-disorder in Wilkes County.

Together using a collective impact model we were able to use systems mapping, listen to the voices of the community and stakeholders, and work to create change in Wilkes.
