Effective Integration of Faith-Based Efforts into Community Recovery Oriented Systems of Care

Thursday, February 6, 2020
2:45 PM
4:00 PM
Chesapeake A-C


During this session our presenters will share how RecoveryOhio has partnered with faith-based recovery organizations and efforts in order to integrate their efforts into the existing community. Attendees will be given practical approaches and tools to share with both faith and community leaders so that the efforts of each are better leveraged and integrated to serve the needs of individuals and families impacted by substance use disorder. This workshop will share ways to remove barriers and deal with challenging topics like stigma, medically assisted treatment integration, and doctrinal and theological differences between partners. Attendees will also see examples of how existing technology offerings can be leveraged to advance integration and service delivery.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

1) Better articulate the role of recovery serving faith-partners in their communities.

2) Leverage proven strategies for faith-based recovery integration into the community.

3) Have access to and be able to immediately leverage the tools provided (APP/Roadmap/Video).
