Recovery science has emerged over the last few years as a field concerned with examining, characterizing, and uplifting addiction and mental health recovery at the individual and community levels. This session will provide an overview of the theoretical foundations of recovery science and examine several innovations in the field over the last two years, including recovery support institutions, recovery measurement, and integrated systems.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
-Identify and discuss key theoretical frameworks applied to recovery science.
-Facilitate community discussions on recovery science at their organizations.
-Plan the incorporation of key recovery innovations at their organizations and in their communities.
