The Substance Abuse and Addiction Recovery Alliance (SAARA) of Virginia is a statewide recovery advocacy organization. We transform communities through hope, education and advocacy for addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery. All friends of recovery are invited and welcome to join us. Our members include individuals in recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction, their families, friends, and dedicated community supporters. SAARA promotes social, educational, legal, research, and health care resources and services that support accessible, effective, and accountable addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery.  Membership in the SAARA of Virginia statewide organization is inclusive of anyone who subscribes to the mission statement. In addition to our advocacy efforts, we offer training and group meetings at SAARA Center, located at our offices at 2000 Mecklenburg St. Richmond, VA 23223.
