Our mission is to help remove the stigmas associated with drug and alcohol addictions by demonstrating the huge benefits of recovery for individuals, families and friends.

Friends of Recovery Mohawk Valley meets the first Tuesday of every month from 6-7pm at the Tramontane Café, 1105 Lincoln Ave, Utica. We welcome anyone who is interested in helping to shape the recovery movement across our community and offer hope to those in need.

Developing recovery supports in the community is essential to building the foundation for and sustaining recovery for the individual and the family. To do so, we must include the voice of people in recovery, families in recovery, families that are struggling with active addiction and those who have lost someone to addiction.
