The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the many failures of our health system. Substance use disorders treatment and recovery supports are already under-resourced, and millions don’t get the support they need. COVID-19 has made it even harder to get in-person services, but it has expanded virtual and remote services. This upheaval provides an opportunity to advocate for needed improvements.
This workshop will share early findings from an initiative* to improve services and outcomes by identifying what outcomes matter most to people with substance use disorders and ensuring their voices guide future research and action. Participants will also have the opportunity to share how COVID is affecting recovery services in their communities, what outcomes they think are most important, and what needs to change so we can achieve those outcomes.

Servant leadership is a model of leadership that focuses on the growth and well-being of the communities that are served. The servant-leader shares power, puts others’ needs first, and helps the development and performance of their people. Different from traditional leadership where the goal is organizational success, servant leadership has the goal of serving its people first.
This session will explore and discuss some of the critical findings of a report developed by William L. White and The PRO-ACT Ethics Workgroup, to practice Ethical Guidelines for the Delivery of Peer-based Recovery Support Services.
"At its most primitive level, aspiring to be ethical involves sustained vigilance in preventing harm and injury to those to whom we have pledged our loyalty. This meaning is revealed through four terms: Iatrogenic,
Fiduciary, Boundary Management, and Multi-party Vulnerability."
Join this roundtable discussion to talk about Peer Leadership Development as it pertains to the Council on Accreditation of Peer Recovery Support Services standards for peer recovery support services (PRSS). We will discuss standards and criteria for this domain as well as strategies that speak to Recruitment, Retention, Selection, and Orientation, and Training and Development. This is an excellent opportunity to exchange approaches and ideas to meet this national standard.
