About Us

Mission

RICARES is a grassroots effort focused on creating a socially just community for all Rhode Islanders impacted by substance use. We approach stigma with an intersectional lens and advocate for change.

Vision

We envision a community where Rhode Islanders have improved their health and wellness. Where every person is given the resources and services they need to succeed, to live a self-directed life, and to reach their full potential.

Our Values

Accountability

We hold ourselves to the highest professional standards. We act ethically in our business decisions. We hold ourselves to the National Accreditation standard for RCO’s.

Advocacy

Our lived experiences guide our organizational culture: respect of our unique stories, and a collective push of systemic change.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

No one person is the same. We believe recovery is as unique as people. Everyone deserves to access recovery. Everyone deserves the same resources to sustain recovery. We want everyone to participate. We want everyone to succeed. We celebrate every pathway to recovery.

Evidence Based

We’re committed to using the best available research evidence and to produce our own results that are measurable.

Innovation & Connection

We create new ways to recover-y everywhere we go.

Interdisciplinary & Collaborative

We rely on the expertise ofour community.

Mutual Respect

We model acceptance and dignity in all our affairs.
