Volunteer for Recovery!

Recovery Centers and other local agencies are always looking for volunteers and interns who share the vision to help support the NYC Recovery community.

At most Recovery Centers, volunteers are the foundation of their programs and day-to-day operations. Since many agencies and recovery centers’ services and events are supported by volunteers whose lives have been touched by substance use disorders in one way or another, volunteers are vital to their success and mission. Most volunteers are primarily interested in giving back, enhancing their life skills, and connecting with recovery community members.

In the years since ECPPD was formed, Exponents has endeavored to celebrate individuals during their long-term recoveries.

The success of Exponents programs depends on the help of a fantastic network of volunteers teaching and spreading the word about the Recovery services.

Exponents’ volunteers hold a variety of roles, including Certified Recovery Peer Advocates, peer facilitators, online group facilitators,  committee members, and more. These volunteers have a diversity of backgrounds, including treatment professionals, family and/or friends of someone with addiction, and individuals who are in long-term recovery. What they have in common is a desire to help others along their journey.
