MWV Supports Recovery was formed to assess the needs of the community, develop action plans to support, educate and empower our community and thus promote successful long-term recovery.
Our focus is on celebrating the recovery movement and breaking down the stigma and discrimination by creating a unified voice for positive change. The Coalition is excited to bring services to the Mt Washington Valley and ready to engage those struggling with substance use disorder.
Recovery is possible. Stigma can be erased through education. MWVSR will “Echo” the sounds of recovery through the Mt. Washington Valley.

MEET OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
“For years there have been limited resources in our community for alcoholism and substance addiction. I am a mother of a young man who struggled with substance use disorder all through his teens and twenties. I was driven by the lack of substantial referral and treatment services locally. Grass roots family organizations make things happen and being involved in such a group has allowed me to heal from family addiction and give back by sharing my experiences, strength and stories of hope. MWV-SRC is one of those groups and will be there for people to assist those riding the storms of addiction. We are family”

“For many years I didn’t know where to turn for help for my daughter who was struggling with Opioid addiction. I was told about MWVSR and that was when my daughter and myself found the help we needed for healing and the journey to recovery began. The drug epidemic does not only affect the individual but the families. MWVSR has and will continue to help strengthen and bring hope to our community”

“The impact of substance use disorders (SUDs) on the family and individual family member’s in our community requires attention. Each family and each family member is uniquely affected by the individual using substances including, but not limited to, impaired attachment, economic hardship, legal problems, emotional distress, and sometimes violence being perpetrated against him or her. Families need to know it is NOT THEIR FALULT, it’s a disorder, you didn’t cause it, you can’t make it stop, you need and deserve help and MWVSR is the venue to get that message out. Providing resources, support and empathy to families affected is my passion and my mission through MWVSR”
