The Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation (GRI) is the first and only national community foundation dedicated to funding organizations that provide support services for people in early recovery from substance use disorders (SUD).

While recovery is the longest part of the journey and the most critical to ensuring an individual’s continued remission from a SUD, it is the least funded.

In addition to the stigma that surrounds SUD, many myths abound. Among them is that people do not stay recovered when in fact there are large number of people who have succeeded: There are currently 22 million people living in the U.S. in long-term recovery.

GRI’s donors help individuals in early recovery by ensuring that anyone who needs recovery support services has access to them.

GRI supports evidence-based programs that have demonstrated success in:

  • Lowering reuse rates;
  • Reducing the stigma around substance use disorder; and
  • Creating greater access to services and opportunities for people in recovery.


GRI has a new CEO! We are so excited to officially welcome the incredible Rev. Jan Brown aboard as our new leader! #recoveryworks
