SAARA of Greater Roanoke Valley serves as The Substance Abuse and Addiction Recovery Alliance for the Southwestern communities of Virginia.  Based in Roanoke, the largest city in Southwest Virginia this alliance is dedicated to the continued education about substance use disorders (SUD’s) and other associated disorders and how they affect individuals, their families, and our communities.  


Our mission is to continue to challenge barriers to recovery and fight stigma through education and advocacy. Help those seeking recovery find their individual pathways by collaborating with community partners to offer new and exciting opportunities for successful and sustainable recovery.


Recovery is happening every day!
