The Recovery Capital Conference of Canda is Canada’s Premier Addiction and Mental Health Recovery Conference.
Leading the change in care for mental health and addiction, the Recovery Capital Conference of Canada will feature leading international researchers, clinicians, and policymakers who will provide evidence-based clinical knowledge gained through decades of care. A fundamental shift is occurring in the way we manage addiction, and the Recovery advocacy movement is making itself heard in Canada.

Dr. Julian Somers
Many people receive addiction treatment only when their lives have become complicated by other challenges, including involvement with the law, loss of housing and employment, or mental illness. This talk examines research on the life trajectories of people who experience complex addictions. It also reviews evidence concerning interventions and considers how the concept of recovery capital can explain why some interventions are more effective than others.
There is a growing recognition that there are many pathways of recovery. This presentation explores the barriers and facilitators to recovery capital. Presenters provide a lens to identify distinct areas that can be enhanced and barriers to be addressed in individuals’ recovery processes.
Three distinct community services present person-centered approaches to strengthening recovery capital.
Additional Speakers include:
Andrew Freedman, State of Colorado’s first Director of Marijuana

Marijuana is a complex drug and a more complex topic, this workshop is designed to educate the participants about the neurological effects of the drug, to understand its addictive potential.
