Pennsylvania Dept. of Drug and Alcohol Programs launches Recovery Rising Initiative

The Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Opioid Response Network (ORN), launched a new initiative called Recovery Rising. DDAP will convene persons in recovery, family members, and other key stakeholders for conversations, regional meetings, and a statewide consensus-building event to increase understanding of person-centered, recovery support services. An Advisory Commission will then create a framework for change offering specific steps for implementation. The initiative aims to create a recovery environment that supports multiple pathways to improved health and personal wellness; diversity, equity, and inclusion; community acceptance; and personal autonomy and empowerment. A website for the initiative is currently under development and will be available in the near future.
