Background Statement

Advocates for Recovery Colorado (AFRC) is a peer-run, grassroots, non-profit organization. Started in 2001, AFRC is the first authentic Recovery Community Organization (RCO) in Colorado; made up of people who are focused on recovery, rather than the problem of addiction. Recognizing that the most difficult part begins after the individual stops using alcohol and other drugs

AFRC remains committed to helping those seeking a life in recovery offering both individual and group coaching as well as CRAFT family groups for those coping with their loved one's addiction and recovery. All of AFRC's Peer Recovery Support Services and social activities throughout Colorado are FREE.
