Substance Us Disorder Continuum: New Era of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care

And this lack of understanding impacts individuals seeking cannabis recovery as it affects the public and medical community that produce the infrastructures meant to support and help individuals along their path in cannabis recovery. This workshop will delve into each stage of cannabis recovery and help attendees understand the journey one embarks on when seeking treatment and recovery. It takes them through the perspectives of those on this journey and gives them a global perspective on the significance of providing resources that support recovery across all stages of that journey.
