A fundamental shift is occurring in the way we manage addiction. The recovery advocacy movement is making itself heard in Canada, alerting governments and policy makers to the millions of people, once suffering silently from addiction, who are now living healthy, drug-free and engaged lives.


The Recovery Capital Conference of Canada features leading international researchers, clinicians and policy makers who will present evidence based clinical experience gained through decades of care. There is some research supporting Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care, and having people in recovery reduces costs to the community. Recovery is defined and measured through pursuit of abstinence, improved quality of life, and pro-social behaviour.


This Canadian Conference will engage delegates in the collaborative practice of solution-focused care for people and their families, supported by paraprofessionals, peers, and mutual support systems.


Delegates will learn how Recovery Capital can involve conventional medical model practices and community based interdisciplinary services to deliver improved outcomes. Speakers will present research that explores specific measures of Recovery Capital. Presenters will also explore how medication and professionally delivered psychosocial treatment modalities, mutual support and spiritual-health programs, cooperative recovery houses, and recovery oriented workplaces are increasingly supported by research.


Working together we can eliminate silos, and move towards the creation of comprehensive systems of care for Canadians.
