All of our Programs are designed to increase Recovery Capital. We view Recovery Capital as all things internal and external that are necessary to sustain an individuals recovery, guiding them into a life of wellness.

Community Organizing

We believe that stigma is an intersectional issue. We treat barriers to recovery as social justice issues. We bring people together to agitate change.

The Movement

We work with people that are new to recovery to identify issues impacting their recovery. We scour the news to keep up with trends and data that inform us about historical and potential future barriers.

Recovery Housing Certification

We believe that all people deserve safe recovery housing. RICARES works to certify Rhode Island recovery houses. We certify houses to NARR standards, a national standard for recovery houses.


We help people and agencies struggling to understand recovery.
