Call for Abstracts Overview

The 4th Annual Recovery Capital Conference Advisory Committee is pleased to announce Abstract submission is open for 2020.

To balance the program and deliver on a range of key global addiction recovery issues, the RCC Committee is seeking abstracts under the themes/sub-themes of Building Recovery Capital to overcome addiction.

Let’s build Recovery Capital in people, healthcare, communities, workplaces and families.

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 individual / all conferences taking place across Canada.
