What MOAR Members do to create those accomplishments:
Some of our members have helped develop peer to peer recovery education, others have benefited from the service, and are educating others. Others are presenting to peer groups, treatment providers, policymakers and members of the media to address needs of those recovering from addiction.
Members volunteer their time behind the scenes to support informational campaigns, rallies, and conferences and other events that support MOAR's mission. Other opportunities include event planning, preparing print, media and web material, telephone calls, letter writing, administrative, clerical support.
Other members make the presence of the recovering community known simply by going to relevant public forums.
Some members contribute stories and items of interest to our newsletter.
Some members simply attend MOAR meetings to discuss issues, or to learn about how to inform and educate others regarding addiction and recovery.
