Communities of Healing



Communities of Healing mobilizes recovered volunteers to support those struggling for recovery through weekly support groups and 1:1 mentorship sessions.
Like ANAD’s support services, the program is free, ensuring access for all. As of September 1, 2020, Communities of Healing is moving from Project HEAL, where it was developed, to ANAD. Watch our announcement video to learn more.

COH volunteers participate in a rigorous vetting process to ensure solid recovery, a comprehensive training process to build their skills, and close supervision to ensure they have the support they need to support others. Leading clinician Carolyn Costin helped to develop the mentor training based on her 8 Keys to Recovery philosophy.

COH support groups are available now! The mentor and mentee applications will reopen on schedule in October, 2020.
