My life in recovery - Experiences and data on recovery journeys of women across Europe
Side event at the 64th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs
Tuesday, April 13 2021
10-10:50 am

While the recovery movement has created a hope-based model for improving outcomes for clients, there has been less emphasis on the implications for women in addiction and recovery. To address this gap the ERANID REC-PATH project examined gender differences in the four European countries and has established cooperation with Recovered Users Network - RUN to expand international database and subjective experiences across Europe and the Balkans.

This unique event will show the results of both the quantitative and in-depth qualitative researches and showcase a personal story of a woman in recovery from addiction and her journey discovery through the Photovoice project. The emphasis of the event will be on understanding the pathways of recovery from addiction with a focus on lived experiences, and through creating shared dialogues about recovery while creating art. Speakers will provide a valuable insight into project activities with a special focus on gender differences but also the implications for addiction and recovery services, as well as for communities and society as a whole.

The main focus of the event will be on building inclusion and reducing marginalization and stigmatization of women in recovery by promoting and celebrating recovery and making recovery visible.
