The Recovery Capital Conference of Canada held in New Westminster on September 6th and 7th, 2018 is the most comprehensive addiction recovery conference offered today.
Leading the change in care for mental health and addiction, the Recovery Capital Conference of Canada will feature leading international researchers, clinicians, and policymakers who will provide evidence-based clinical knowledge gained through decades of care.
Emerging research supports the concept that Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care demonstrate improved mental and physical health, improved quality of life, pro-social behavior, and a dramatic reduction in human and financial cost to the community.
This Canadian Conference will engage delegates in the collaborative practice of solution-focused care for people and their families, supported by paraprofessionals, peers, and mutual support systems. Delegates will learn how Recovery Capital can involve conventional medical model practices and community-based interdisciplinary services work.
Speakers will present evidence-based research that explores specific measures of Recovery Capital. Presenters will also explore how medication and professionally delivered psycho-social treatment modalities, mutual support and spiritual-health programs, cooperative recovery houses, and recovery-oriented workplaces are increasingly supported by research.
A fundamental shift is occurring in the way we manage addiction and the Recovery advocacy movement is making itself heard in Canada. This movement is alerting governments and policymakers of the millions of people, once suffering silently from addiction, who are now living healthy, drug-free and engaged lives.
Working together we can eliminate silos, and move towards the creation of better comprehensive systems of care for Canadians.
