SOS Recovery Community Organization is presenting the Northeast’s premier peer-recovery conference. The conference will include more than a half-dozen nationally recognized keynotes that will present on innovations in peer-based recovery supports and harm reduction with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. This conference will also include several breakouts over 2 days surrounding the theme of the conference.

We are in the process of applying for CEU’s with NHNASW for Social Workers and the NH Board of Licensing for Alcohol and other drugs for MLADC, LADC’s and CRSW’s.

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.


Thank you to all who have contributed to our annual conference!
