What We Do
NCAAR advocacy takes different forms, performed at both the micro and macro levels, advocating for the individual as well as for policies that advance systemic change.
How We Do It
Our three-pronged approach Includes: Public Policy, Advocacy, Care Coordination
Our grassroots advocacy program provides education and awareness by harnessing the voices of recovery. Advocates share their message with the public and legislators to improve services and policies that make the landscape of behavioral health more recovery-oriented. Issues in the state that bear the stamp of NCAAR advocacy include: Medication Assisted Treatment, recovery support services, harm reduction, criminal justice reform, and insurance parity for behavioral health.
The Substance Abuse Initiative and Behavioral Health Initiative (SAI/BHI) and Family Violence Option (FVO) advocate for quality service and care for recipients of public assistance experiencing issues related to addiction, mental health, and domestic violence.
