The Central Virginia Addiction & Recovery Resources Coalition, CVARR was created to help foster a community-wide approach to addiction and to promote recovery and healthy lifestyles. Our goal is to connect people with the resources they need to find their own path to treatment and recovery.

Central Virginia Addiction and Recovery Resources believes in the power of collaborative problem solving and grassroots efforts to solve our community’s substance use challenges. By bringing organizations, and citizens from across sectors together, CVARR helps our community maximize resources, support, and solutions.

CVARR has active members from the twelve Drug-Free Communities Sectors; youth, parents, business, media, schools, state / local government, youth-serving organizations, religious, civic / volunteer groups, healthcare, law enforcement, and other alcohol, tobacco & other drug organizations.  All members are committed to the development of trust, transparency, and transfer of knowledge to advance our mission.

With community support and interest, CVARR is positioned to become the lead resource for advancing community conditions, norms, systems and policies for substance use prevention, treatment and recovery in Central Virginia.
