Bridging the Gap Between Prevention and Recovery

Wed, Jan 20 2021, 1 - 2pm

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Behavioral health services exist along a continuum, from mental health promotion and substance use prevention to treatment through to recovery support. The behavioral health continuum of care framework is both an organizing principle and a way of identifying opportunities for collaboration across service providers. One such opportunity may exist between substance use prevention providers and recovery support service providers. Although they are serving different populations, both seek to address risk and protective factors for substance use and there can be overlap between prevention and relapse prevention. This webinar will examine this potential overlap and discuss opportunities for collaboration that may exist between prevention and recovery support services.
