National Summit on Recovery Conference Report

On September 28-29, 2005, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) convened over 100 stakeholders to discuss transformative ideas and concrete recommendations for moving the substance use disorders services field more toward a recovery-oriented approach.  At the Summit, leaders in the field identified guiding principles of recovery and elements of recovery-oriented systems for care for people with substance use disorders.  This was the first time a broad-based consensus on guiding principles of recovery and elements of recovery-oriented systems of care was achieved on a national level. 
The Report from the CSAT National Summit on Recovery is being provided as a reference document to assist individuals and organizations submitting applications under the CSAT Request for Applicants (RFA) for the Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC) Program.  The ATTC RFA requires applicants to discuss how they will help prepare the addictions workforce to function in recovery-oriented systems of care.  By providing background information on the process and key findings of the CSAT National Summit on Recovery, the Conference Report may be helpful to applicants.
