with Bernadette Gleeson

1 Hour Webinar Training


PRESENTATION: The field seems to be shifting mightily towards finding the best ways to help people initiate and sustain long-term recovery through various pathways, patterns, stages, and styles of recovery. Because of this, the door has opened for the concepts of Recovery Management (RM) and Resiliency and Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (RROSC), but they are quite often incorrectly defined, understood, and/or used interchangeably. This training will take a deep look at what and why these concepts are, as well as what the recovery research shows will give people the best opportunities over time to initiate and sustain long-term recovery. As a result of this training participants will:

  • Define what RM, RROSC, and Recovery Capital is, as well as demonstrate a solid understanding of how they are intertwined.
  • Describe multiple pathways to/in/of recovery.
  • Explain the role of Recovery Capital (RC) – both internal and external – how to build it, and how it helps people initiate and sustain recovery.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the existing research on recovery as it relates to RM, RROSC, and RC.
  • Share a general framework of the complex ecosystem within people with SUDs will get and stay well.
