Mission, Vision, & Values


Provide leadership, advocacy, training, and member support services to ensure the equitable availability and highest quality of addiction treatment.


Recovery for All. 


These core values that shape our culture, enrich our relationships, and guide our work

  • Humility & Authenticity: Humility is at the core of recovery and the treatment that leads to recovery. Humility is the condition of right-sized honest perspective and accuracy in all things.
  • Justice: We invite the diverse experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds of all our stakeholders. We actively promote diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and meaningful representation within the organization, in communities we serve, and through access to culturally competent treatment.
  • Advocacy: We are champions for recovery and leaders in expanding access to quality addiction treatment.
  • Integrity: We maintain the highest personal and institutional standards for honesty, openness, and ethical practices.
  • Community & Collaboration: We achieve more together through shared vision, trusted relationships, good will, and cooperative action than any of us can on our own. We believe in a sum greater than its parts.
  • Evidence: We recognize science and objective truth. The principle of EB (evidenced by) is the core of our beliefs and actions.
  • Innovation: Evolution of thought and action is a core principle. We sustain and grow, never standing still. 
  • Proficiency & Professionalism: Beyond competence, we are committed to excellence and achieving the highest standards of our work.
