Life of Purpose is excited to announce its participation at the 7th Annual Collegiate Recovery Conference. The Association of Recovery in Higher Education (ARHE) is hosting this year’s National Collegiate Recovery Conference on April 6 – 8, 2016 at the Omni Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
Devin Reaves, MSW, Clinical Outreach Coordinator at Life of Purpose, will be presenting two workshops in partnership with University of Vermont’s Amy Boyd Austin, MSS. “Marginalized Populations in Collegiate Recovery” will take place on Thursday, April 7th at 9:45 am and “Join the Conversation: Supporting Marginalized Populations in Collegiate Recovery Programs” will follow right after at 11:00 am. This two-part presentation will focus on the basic tenets of power and privilege with regard to race, heteronormativity, religious affiliation, and mental health diagnosis. Workshop participants will discuss best practices for engaging marginalized populations and offer future research suggestions.
Life of Purpose, Founder and CEO Andrew Burki, MSW, will be presenting a workshop on Friday, April 8th at 8:30 am titled, “Collegiate Recovery: The Natural Extension in the Continuum of Care for Emerging Adults”. This presentation will focus on properly integrating collegiate recovery services into the standard treatment model for emerging adults. Attendees will learn the standard substance use disorder treatment model and how it can be improved with the inclusion of collegiate recovery as a resource for clients.
ARHE’s Annual Collegiate Recovery Conference is an opportunity for experts in the field of education and addiction and recovery to share a body of knowledge across the continuum of care, with a focus on recovery support systems in higher education.
