Recovery Ministries is an independent, nationwide network of Episcopal laity and clergy, dioceses and parishes, schools, agencies, and other institutions - all with a common commitment to address the effects of addiction, in all its forms, in relation to the church's mission.
Recovery Ministries serves as a voice of conscience to Episcopalians throughout the world, building awareness of pastoral and spiritual ministry to those addicted. The original concept for Recovery Ministries’ mission dates from the landmark 1979 General Convention resolution on alcohol. The resolutions from the 2015 General Convention, and Resolutions D057, D058, D0 59 from the 2018 General Convention underscore the need to strengthen our resolve.
