The “All in for Florida: A Recovery Project" is a three-year initiative with the broad goal of building recovery groups across Florida into sustainable Recovery Community Organizations (RCO) that utilize Certified Peer Recovery Specialists to enhance support services within the local recovery network consistent with the guiding principles of a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC).

The project includes listening sessions around the state to understand the needs of individuals in recovery as well as the development of a statewide advisory board of recovery champions to guide the efforts of the project. We will also organize training tailored for peers, peer coalitions, and recovery communities. The project will select a total of eight communities around Florida to support in their development of an RCO.



As part of a statewide recovery movement, Lee County had approximately 200 community members participate in a Recovery Symposium. The purpose was to highlight the voices of recovery from multiple pathways, and gather valuable information from the community in an effort to create a grassroots Recovery Community Organization (RCO) that services the Lee County area. This RCO will be a peer driven community based organization that offers love, compassion, and peer direction to persons in or seeking recovery and their families/friends. Watch a video they produced to share with the community.
