A panel discussion about recovery from individuals living in recovery. Panelists will share their definitions of recovery and an overview of their recovery journey. Attendees will hear about tools, strategies and approaches were used as part of the recovery journey of the panelists.

Join the conversation as we introduce you to two leaders in caregiver support and care transitions: Jennifer Heston-Mullins, PhD, LISW will walk us through Miami University’s Our Family, Our Way, communication and care coordination resources for caregiving families to help identify gaps and conflicts, and Mark Tole, PhD, RN from UNC-Chapel Hill will share lessons learned from the Connect-Home transitions of care pilot which can lead to an improved transitional care experience. Separately and/or used together these tools can help you reduce readmissions. Please be sure to invite those who help with discharge planning at your facility to this special event.

This presentation will allow others to gain a glimpse of what recovery from substance use disorder looks like. We will define recovery, look at the many different pathways to recovery, discover how the brain heals in recovery, and how stigma and language can affect someone’s recovery.
