Start Date: March 17, 2016
End Date: March 17, 2016

Recovery supports are not as available or as utilized in diverse communities as they are in predominately white communities. Addressing this reality is not as simple as increasing outreach and engagement. Organizations seeking to deliver recovery supports within diverse communities must make sure that the supports they deliver are culturally congruent.
For many individuals belonging to diverse communities, adverse childhood experiences, social determinants of health, discrimination, and intergenerational toxic shame pose persistent barriers to achieving long-term recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) or mental health conditions. Adapting recovery-oriented support models to better suit the social, cultural, spiritual, and economic characteristics of diverse communities is both essential and achievable. A number of organizations have developed culturally congruent or culturally specific approaches to delivering recovery supports. Others have adapted existing programming to better fit the needs of diverse communities.
The Establishing Whole Health Recovery Models in Diverse Communities webinar will describe how principles of recovery relate to whole health approaches in diverse communities, offer examples of culturally congruent recovery supports, provide tools and resources to assist with planning and implementing recovery supports in diverse communities, and discuss culturally congruent recovery messaging and language.
Webinar participants will be able to:
- Articulate the importance of culturally congruent recovery supports and integrated healthcare services;
- Describe the components of successful recovery support service models for diverse communities; and
- Access whole health capital and resources to assist with identifying and leveraging culturally congruent capital.
