Regional Recovery Consortium

The Regional Recovery Consortium is an initiative for those who have been impacted by Substance Use Disorder (SUD), including individuals, families, and community members to meet monthly to discuss the effect of addiction and implement a strategic plan that covers the following project areas: Membership, Stigma, Response, and Recovery. We strive to expand & improve a comprehensive and sustainable "Circle of Care" for those who live with SUD through regional collaboration.

VISION

To have a community free of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and fatal overdoses.

MISSION

To reduce the number of community members in Erie, Huron, Ottawa, and Sandusky Counties, living with SUD and experiencing fatal overdoses through regional cooperation and collaboration.

PROJECT AREAS

The Regional Recovery Consortium has four identified project areas that are further outlined in the Strategic Action Plan:
