On Thursday July 15, 2021, at 12:00-1:30PM EDT (6:00 – 7:30PM CEST), RUN organises a webinar on Strength-Based Approaches to Overcoming Stigma Around Addiction and Recovery.
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. Yet, stigma, exclusion, and marginalisation pose a substantial barrier to not only those still suffering from addiction also to people in recovery.
This unique event will focus on providing best examples and practices around challenging stigma and will bring together representatives of academia and recovery organisations from the US and around the globe. Speakers will provide valuable insights into new data and research but the main focus will centre on overcoming stigma by promoting inclusiveness and celebrating the positive examples and success stories of people in long-term recovery.
Speakers :Elisa Rubini, David Best, John F. Kelly, Brandee Izquierdo
