Webinar on 'Service Providers in Recovery & Harm Reduction' set

Service Providers in Recovery & Harm Reduction: The challenges and rewards

Supporting people who use drugs requires a recognition of the multiple pathways of recovery that are possible.

A harm reduction approach is a central ingredient in helping people define their own recovery. Service providers with lived experience are often the most well-equipped to develop the therapeutic relationship necessary to use this approach, yet may have been drawn to this work through an abstinence-based recovery journey.

This session explores how staff in recovery utilize lived experience to support substance users in harm reduction spaces. It addresses the challenges staff encounter in the field and how organizations can support them. Presenters will lead a discussion with attendees about how lived experience impacts their work as service providers.
