Recovery Science and Harm Reduction Reading Group
The Recovery Science and Harm Reduction Reading Group is an interdisciplinary reading group that meets to discuss a recent journal article on a topic related to recovery science and/or harm reduction. We will meet on the third Thursday of each month from 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EST. Our target audience is people who use drugs or in recovery, their family and friends, peer recovery specialists, care providers, policymakers, students, researchers, and anyone else interested.
This Reading Group will take place using Zoom, and registration is optional. To support participants sharing their experiences we do not record the Reading Group meeting. We hope to continue the great conversations seen at previous meetings.
