Recovery Works Summit 2017
The Second Annual Recovery Works Summit is an exciting and historic opportunity to once again bring together the mental health and drug and alcohol recovery communities.
The Summit will be held on September 12-13, 2017 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel 4650 Lindle Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17111. More information concerning the Summit and registration will be available Spring of 2017.
People in recovery, providers of behavioral health services and policy makers will join in collaborative efforts to strengthen our voices, use our talents and experiences to expand employment opportunities, unite our voices on advocacy issues and eliminate stigma and discrimination.
The Summit will focus on three topics designed to strengthen our collective voices and expand recovery.
- Exploration of opportunities and challenges for recovery workforce development and retention;
- Advocacy within and between the recovery movements;
- Working together to impact public policy that effects peer based recovery support services and our recovery systems.
This work will be done through keynote speaker presentations, panel discussions, workshops, a plenary session and networking.
Please join us as we use our lived experience to improve our systems and change lives through recovery and new opportunities in our Pennsylvania communities.
This summit is funded through a SAMHSA Recovery and Resiliency grant awarded to the Pennsylvania Recovery Organizations – Alliance in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers' Association.
