Every Allegheny County resident with a mental health and/or substance use disorder is supported in his/her recovery journey by friends, families, communities and service providers who understand and practice recovery principles.
The mission of ACCR is to increase awareness of behavioral health recovery and to promote the use of recovery principles and practices in behavioral health services in Allegheny County.
