Call for Abstracts Overview

Theme – Recovery Capital and Building Recovery Capital

With a focus on Recovery Capital, this year’s advisory committees are looking for contributions to the domains of Recovery Capital and Recovery-oriented systems of care. Recovery capital—both its quantity and quality—plays a major role in determining the success or challenges of natural and assisted recovery.

Presenters may explore how research and practice-based developments in substance use recovery policy and practice contribute to existing understandings of recovery capital, recovery-oriented infrastructures, and recovery-oriented workplaces.

We welcome abstract submissions for the concurrent program including poster presentations, plenary sessions, panels, courses and workshops. You can submit for both conferences taking place across Canada.

Share your work, and your ideas with colleagues, service users, government and the public at Canada’s series of Recovery Capital Conferences 2019.
