Our Mission

Reach Out Recovery is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to Addiction Education, Prevention, and Recovery founded in March 2011

ROR was founded to fill the need of 120 million adults and children, extended families, employers, co-workers, and friends whose lives have been changed forever by addiction. Reach Out Recovery is the only nonprofit media organization to create a platform for reliable behavior and process addiction information, daily news relevant to recovery issues, and help and support to find solutions and support. 

Reach Out Recovery was founded by Leslie Glass and her daughter Lindsey Glass who saw a need for a media nonprofit with a priority of addiction prevention, recovery, and healthy living. Like 120 million Americans, the Glasses were impacted addiction, teen addiction in their case. After traveling the recovery journey, they created a website to help others cope. Reach Out Recovery is the only unbiased, non profit recovery platform that combines researchable information about substances and addictions, news articles, the latest research, healthy living and relationship tips, and dozens of original bloggers..
