Start Date: August 19, 2014
End Date: August 19, 2014

(ONDCP - ROSC webinar)
An abundance of research supports the eyewitness testimony that mutual aid meetings help people achieve and sustain recovery. This webinar will introduce you to three of the leading non-spiritual recovery pathways that can be followed independently or in combination with 12-Step or other mutual aid approaches. You’ll be introduced to LifeRing, SMART Recovery, and Women for Sobriety. Each has a unique approach and seeks to ensure that those seeking recovery have a variety of mutual aid programs from which to choose. Each also recognizes that taking part in more than one mutual aid program can be beneficial to many individuals.
Inform ONDCP ROSC Learning Community members and others about these three mutual aid pathways and foster measures to increase awareness of the diverse mutual aid pathways among those in, seeking, or leaving treatment, providers and public officials, and the general public.
This session will be primarily discussion based. You must register to attend. Registration is FREE.
