Strategies for Advancing Recovery Supports Nationwide

October 21, 2016 | Addiction Policy Forum
Addiction Policy Forum invites you to Strategies for Advancing Recovery Supports Nationwide
This briefing examined promising practices for expanding recovery support in communities and in criminal justice settings. Panelists talked about innovative programs currently being implemented in states and localities that have shown promising results, including active community recovery support programs, recovery coaching in emergency rooms, family peer support, and jail based peer support models.
This event was part of the launch for the "Translating Science into Practice" series that will provide policymakers and practitioners with actionable resources about programs that are working to reduce and treat addiction--including prevention, overdose reversal, medication-assisted treatment, recovery, early intervention, treatment, and reentry.
