National Alliance for Medication Assisted Recovery

"Just that you people who are involved in advocacy, keep up the work. I have seen
changes come about because of people becoming involved. It is these who are the real heroes
in all this. Without advocacy, changes will not come about within the present system."
Dr. Vincent Dole


NAMA Recovery is an organization composed of medication assisted treatment patients and health care professionals that are supporters of quality opiate agonist treatment. We have thousands of members worldwide with a network of international affiliated organizations and chapters in many places in the United States.

T he primary objective of NAMA Recovery is to advocate for the patient in treatment by destigmatizing and empowering medication assisted treatment patients. First and foremost, NAMA Recovery confronts the negative stereotypes that impact on the self esteem and worth of many medication assisted treatment patients with a powerful affirmation of pride and unity.
