Partners for Recovery (PFR) is an initiative sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT). It addresses issues of national significance and it is driven by the individual, families and communities it serves. The PFR Initiative supports and provides technical resources to those who deliver services for the prevention and treatment of substance use conditions and co-occurring mental health and seeks to build capacity and improve services and systems of care.
PFR core activities include:
- Supporting and facilitating the development of Systems of Care to support individual, family, and community recovery;
- Fostering collaboration among the various systems that impact those with substance use and co-occurring mental health conditions (e.g., primary care, child welfare, criminal justice);
- Equipping recovering individuals, providers, State and local governments, and other stakeholders with the tools to respond to stigma;
- Developing and implementing a comprehensive strategy to address workforce issues for the addictions treatment and recovery field; and
- Preparing the next generation of leaders in the addictions treatment and recovery field.
For more information please see our PFR Fact Sheet (4pp, PDF, 155KB). The updated PFR Fact Sheet highlights distinctive features of the PFR initiative, its approach to improving services and systems, its current accomplishments and projects, and upcoming activities, resources, and events.
PFR has released a "Briefing on Substance Use Treatment and Recovery in the United States" (6pp, PDF, 256KB) that highlights the issues and realities of addictions and the addictions field.
