The recovery movement has grown over the past decade and has created a hope-based model for improving outcomes for people with addiction who seek recovery. Still stigma, exclusion and marginalization pose a substantial barrier to not only those still suffering from addiction but also to people in recovery.
This unique event will show best examples and practices around challenging stigma and will bring together the science and lived experience of a woman in long term recovery. Speakers will provide a valuable insight into new data and research but the main focus of the event will be on building inclusion and reducing stigmatization of people in recovery by promoting and celebrating positive examples and ways to challenge and overcome stigma.
