(New, March 2017) Recovery to Practice is pleased to introduce the on-demand continuing medical education (CME) series
The main Recovery to Practice project is pleased to introduce the on-demand continuing medical education (CME) series: Clinical Decision Support for Prescribers Treating Individuals with Co-occurring Disorders
This two-course series offers information and resources for physicians, clinicians, and other practitioners serving individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorder.
In this scenario-based series, participants meet “Nick,” a young father with many strengths and who is challenged by both substance use and mental illness. The course explores the question: How do I approach Nick and help him meet his needs in ways that are both clinically sound and recovery-focused?
The faculty are national experts in recovery, including psychiatrists, a psychologist, a social worker, a nurse, and peers. They offer tools, tips, and strategies for addressing Nick’s needs, and those of other individuals facing similar challenges. Watch one or both courses at your convenience!
Each course is approved for 1.5 AAFP (American Academy of Family Physicians) prescribed credits.

FROM PRISON TO COMMUNITY: EVIDENCE OF THE TRANSFORMING POWER OF FORENSIC PEER SUPPORT
Presenter: Rita Cronise & Noelle Pollet
Description: Next Steps is a SAMHSA-Funded workshop designed by the International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) for peer support workers based on the transforming practices of the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP). AVP started in prison and continues to flourish there. A total of 14,230 incarcerated citizens in the U.S.A. took the training in 2014. 1500 incarcerated facilitators in 100 prisons work to transform their communities both while incarcerated and upon their release. Come experience a taste of this transforming practice first-hand and learn how it can be used to enrich the many settings touched by justice-involved individuals and peer support.
This page contains a chronological listing of upcoming conferences, meetings, deadlines, and SAMHSA initiatives relevant to the Recovery to Practice project.
