Agenda

A statewide committee is working hard to design a vibrant, productive agenda for the summit.  Panel & workshops will include—but not be limited to—the following:

  • Kicking Ass: Building Recovery Community Power
  • Sleeping around: Practicing Multiple Forms of Recovery
  • Just Got Out: Navigating Post-Incarceration Recovery
  • All’s Fair in Love & Recovery!
  • How Spiritual is my Recovery?
  • The Emerging Science of Recovery
  • We Won’t be Marginalized: Racism, Sexism, Homophobia & Recovery
  • What Now? Building Family Support Groups
  • Not Your Grandfather’s Recovery: MAT & Harm Reduction as Part of the Recovery Continuum
  • Movement Building: What Can We Learn from Marriage Equality and HIV/AIDS Campaigns
  • And More!

Additionally, we will provide space for closed affinity groups (eg. LGBTC, Communities of Color, formerly incarcerated, etc), offer guided bike tours, recovery yoga sessions and multiple forms of organized recovery meetings (eg. Wellbriety, Refuge Recovery, SMART, and 12 Steps).

There will also be a comedy slam, a music circle and an ongoing recovery art workshop.

Please understand that some programming in tentative and may be moved to other time slots to accommodate the participants’ schedules.
