SAARA of Virginia actively supports the formation of local affiliate chapters throughout the commonwealth. Affiliates are independent but work together to advocate for recovery resources that are needed most in their area. Affiliates Boards are volunteers in long-term recovery or friends of recovery from Substance use Disorders. Services they offer range from workshops, suit drives, advocacy campaigns, and various fundraisers.
