Racial Equity in Recovery
Racial equity matters in recovery support, and peer-run and recovery community organizations across the country are taking steps to learn more about how they can become more equitable and inclusive. Black people, in or seeking recovery, are less likely to access treatment and recovery support services than the general population, although they experience mental illness and substance use disorder at similar rates.
Presenters will highlight key indicators and challenges and describe best practices and promising strategies for advancing racial equity.
