SAMHSA Recovery Research and Evaluation Technical Expert Panel Summary Report

The TEP was convened by the National Council on Behavioral Health and the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Recovery Research Institute (RRI) on behalf of SAMHSA in order to create a forum for sharing existing scientific knowledge regarding recovery support services (RSS) in addressing substance use disorders in the United States (please see Attachment A for the agenda.) The TEP provided a forum from which to hear from constituencies and stakeholders serving in relevant community organizations (e.g., Recovery Community Centers; Recovery Residences) or Federal roles (e.g., NIDA and NIAAA program officials), as well as leaders serving in state and systems-level capacities (please see Attachment B for a list of participants). The TEP was held at SAMHSA on August 1-2, 2018.
