Recovery LIVE! Supporting Recovery for All: Racial Equity in Recovery Support Communities and Services
Thursday | August 27, 2020 | 2:00–3:00 p.m. (EDT)
Racial equity matters in recovery support, and peer-run and recovery community organizations across the country are taking steps to learn more about how they can become more equitable and inclusive. Black people, in or seeking recovery, are less likely to access treatment and recovery support services than the general population, although they experience mental illness and substance use disorder at similar rates.1 Anecdotal evidence suggests that even with a growing number of Black recovery leaders and Black-led recovery organizations, Black people continue to be underrepresented and underserved within recovery support settings. SAMHSA’s Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) invites you to join national experts in a conversation about racial equity in recovery support communities and services. Our presenters will highlight key indicators and challenges and describe best practices and promising strategies for advancing racial equity in recovery support settings.
