The MOAR Approach
The members of MOAR promote public awareness of substance abuse and the value of addiction recovery by:
Recruiting recovering persons, their family members and friends, to join MOAR!
Using Recovery Messaging Tools to speak out regarding the benefits of recovery, and the social costs of addiction in our communities and the workplace.
Celebrating “Recovery Month Celebration Day” every year by inviting recovering persons, policy makers, legislators, treatment providers, and others to meet together.
We discuss our accomplishments, as well as the continued need for public education and awareness about addiction.
Offering community education about the need for a full continuum of care with certified peer recovery coaches, peer recovery support centers, and other peer recovery support services that reflect multiple pathways to and for recovery.
Supporting culturally specific treatment and recovery support services.
Educating insurers, HMOs and other third party payors regarding the need for equal access to and adequate treatment benefit.
Partnering with treatment providers to assure access and quality care for persons needing help with addiction and their families
Educating health care providers and the public to reduce the discrimination of addiction, while promoting the recognition of addictive disorders as a public health problem.
