The Kansas City Recovery Coalition is a network for substance abuse treatment and recovery support providers. It is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization that is comprised of programs and professionals who work with individuals seeking to overcome substance use disorder and their family members. This includes faith-based providers, community substance abuse and mental health treatment centers, local medical centers, prevention providers, and other community-based organizations institutions.

These partners work together to provide a network of treatment, prevention, and recovery support services that addresses mental health and chemical abuse issues in Kansas City and other areas of the Missouri Western region. These agencies, along with other community organizations, city, county, state, and federal government agencies, operate in a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC) to deliver services to thousands of people every year.

Our purpose is to support and enhance the existing ROSC for persons and their families in the Kansas City area, whose lives are impacted by the use of alcohol and/or other drugs.

Our goals are:

  1. To raise community awareness of substance abuse, prevention, mental health issues, and recovery.
  2. Advocate for the recovery oriented systems of care to benefit kansas city and its surrounding communities.
  3. To create and implement city-wide recovery events on an ongoing basis that promotes the purpose and objectives of the coalition.
  4. Strengthen coalition agencies’ individual and collective capacity within the Kansas City recovery oriented systems of care.
  5. Increase professional training and career development opportunities for members of the coalition.

Today the Kansas City Recovery coalition is in association with approximately (40) local service organizations and multiple agencies throughout the state. As a coalition, we proudly represent Kansas City, Missouri as a recognized system of care for people seeking to enter into or sustain recovery.

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.  SAMHSA
