The Lancaster County Recovery Alliance (LCRA) is a grassroots coalition founded in May 2015 whose original purpose was to explore and develop solutions to issues resulting from addiction, as well as to coordinate our county’s Recovery Day Lancaster celebration each fall.

LCRA members include people in recovery; addiction treatment, recovery, prevention, and criminal justice professionals; family members; school personnel; faith community members; the business community; and other allies who are passionate about lowering stigma around addiction and promoting recovery.

Together, we work to normalize addiction recovery as a healthy and contributing factor towards a strong community.

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to encourage a recovering lifestyle within the community at large for those affected by addiction through Awareness, Advocacy and Access.

Our vision is the elimination of stigma, so that communities become welcoming to individuals and families working to sustain recovery. 


The Leadership Committee consists of members who are responsible for providing guidance on overall strategic direction and key issues of LCRA, including:

  • Assessing our local needs and strengths
  • Organizing projects and mobilizing individuals to participate
  • Developing a media and marketing strategy
  • Creating procedures for resource allocation and sustainability
  • Making decisions involving large expenditures
