The Addiction Recovery Appointments Project (ARAP) is a project of Facing Addiction in partnership with Foundation For Recovery. Serving as a talent bank for people openly in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs seeking opportunities to improve our government’s policies and processes, this project is designed to aggressively identify and recruit, prepare and support people in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs to increase the number of people in recovery across the government.
Whether you are a recent graduate or a seasoned professional, if you have ever considered public service, now is the time to share your expertise and give the addiction recovery community a voice at the table. The president appoints more than 4,000 executive branch employees across federal agencies, boards and commissions, ranging from entry-level special assistant and confidential assistant positions up to senior Ambassador and Cabinet-level posts. In addition to full-time appointed positions in Washington, D.C., there are opportunities to serve on boards, advisory committees and grant reviewing groups across the country.
