The Board of Directors and Recovery Dharma Stewardship Philosophy

The purpose of the Recovery Dharma Board of Directors is to serve the community and support what’s happening at the ground level. Board members will provide an infrastructure so that we may share resources, communicate, and grow together. The Board of Directors’ vision for leadership is informed by the wisdom of recovery programs that have come before us and organizations and communities that have experienced longevity because of their dedication to being truly peer-led and not-for-profit.

Please see the bylaws of the Recovery Dharma non-profit organization for more details.

About the Board of Directors

The Board is composed of Recovery Dharma members across the United States who have been voted into office by members of the Recovery Dharma community. Our ongoing goal is to build a Board of Directors reflective of the diversity of identity, geography, and perspective of Recovery Dharma.

With a commitment to developing an organization informed by the spirit of democracy and a foundation in what’s happening at the local, grass-roots level, the Board is leading efforts in the following areas:

  • Literature development and distribution
  • Multi-channel communication with the Recovery Dharma community
  • Programming and events
  • Local support
  • Treatment center outreach
  • Inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility
  • Day-to-day operational responsibilities
