Event Details

Recovery from addiction is considered an ongoing process; it requires the person to continuously manage their addiction to prevent problems from returning. But there is no clear consensus on what recovery means in the field of addictions.

Join us for our latest webinar in the "New Narratives" series, as two researchers discuss the results of their study on this topic and implications for Ontario’s addiction treatment system.

You’ll learn about:

  • The current understanding of addiction recovery.
  • Findings from a study that asked people with lived experience of addiction to define recovery.
  • How we can assess recovery as part of a recovery-monitoring system in an addictions treatment setting in Ontario.

To learn more about the study, please read our Research Snapshot.
