I am excited and pleased to welcome you all to the “new look” of the American Recovery Association website. Our staff has worked diligently to make the ARA website the best in the industry. The new site has been designed to be more user friendly for ARA members and clients alike. We are confident everyone will find it easier to navigate. We’ve also added more informative and educational content – like a new blog, which will keep you up to date with ARA news, industry related subjects and more!
We are so excited about this new venture and hope you enjoy it. If you have any input or suggestions for the site, please do not hesitate to contact the home office at 972-755-4755 or contact a member of the board directly.
