Description: Recovery Management (RM) is a philosophical framework for organizing addiction treatment services to provide pre-recovery identification and engagement, recovery initiation and stabilization, long-term recovery maintenance, and quality of life enhancement for individuals and families affected by severe substance use disorders.
Recovery Oriented Systems of Care, such as the RM model developed by William White, have begun to shape the future of addictions treatment programming. Acute Care (AC) models of treatment are not the best frameworks treating severe and persistent opiate and other substance abuse problems. This workshop will explore the core principles of the Recovery Management model and will look to advance the discussion about how treatment services can be made more relevant and effective for individuals with severe and persistent opiate and other substance abuse treatment needs
