Recovery, Inclusion, Community & Harm Reduction Conference (RICH) 2023
April 4 @ 8:00 am - April 5 @ 5:00 pm EDT
SOS Recovery Community Organization is presenting the 3rd annual Recovery, Inclusion, Community & Harm Reduction (RICH) Conference 2023. This is the Northeast’s premier peer-based harm-reduction and recovery conference. The conference will include nationally recognized keynotes that will present on innovations in peer-based harm reduction and recovery supports with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. This conference will include up to a sixteen 75 minute breakouts over 2 days surrounding the theme of the conference.
This conference will attract leaders and advocates within the prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction communities across New England as well as health care providers, clinical staffs, licensed professionals, mental health professionals, agency staff, social service providers, educators, first-responders and local, state and federal policy makers and legislators. The conference will also attract individuals and family members impacted by substance use disorder, people who use drugs, people who identify as sex workers, and allies of the recovery and harm reduction community.
The goal of the conference will be to present local and regional innovations, exploring the impact of peer-based recovery support services and integrating efforts between the prevention, treatment, recovery, mental health and harm reduction communities with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. We continue to needlessly lose tens of thousands of lives to preventable overdose deaths each year in this country and this conference will provide a space for advocacy, pushing the boundaries of effective responses, challenge the status-quo. Most importantly, the goal will be one of networking and working together for a compassionate approach to innovation and evidence-based solutions as communities.
