More info at conference website: www.innovationsinrecovery.com

The SOS Innovations in Recovery Conference will attract leaders and advocates within the prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction communities across New England as well as health care providers, clinical staffs, licensed professionals, mental health professionals, agency staff, social service providers, educators, and local, state and federal policy makers and legislators. The conference will also attract individuals and family members impacted by substance use disorder, people who use drugs, and allies of the recovery and harm reduction community.

The goal of the conference will be to present local and regional innovations, exploring the impact of trauma, toxic stress and to work toward reducing stigma and integrating efforts between the prevention, treatment, recovery, mental health and harm reduction communities. We continue to needlessly lose tens of thousands of lives to preventable overdose deaths each year in this country and this conference will provide a space for advocacy, pushing the boundaries of effective responses, challenge the status-quo. Most importantly, the goal will be one of networking and working together for a compassionate approach to innovation and evidence-based solutions as communities.

Conference Objectives:

 Support the provision of evidence- based practices; and
