Group Portrait


Recovery Community Organizations are independent, non-profit organizations led by local people in recovery and their allies. Allies may themselves be people in

long-term recovery, their families, and friends,

recovery-focused professionals or simply concerned citizens with an interest in providing support. Simply put, DuPage RCO is an organization for people in recovery, by people in recovery.  Our work is grassroots and reflective of the community we serve.

“When building programs for people in recovery, those same people should have a say in what they look like.”
