Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 13th Annual Indiana Annual Recovery Symposium. Over the course of two days, we explored Recovery for Everyone: every person, every family, every community. We were honored to share the stage with other thought leaders who carved their own path to recovery support.
A few INARMS takeaways:
Harm Reduction is a continuum. It’s crucial that we broaden the definition and build a more comprehensive approach to addiction support.
The work before us is all-encompassing. Because of this, we should lean on our peers and/or seek out combined services to ensure no one – whether it be person, family, community – falls through the cracks on their path to recovery.
With that said, there is an overwhelming need for workers/professionals/volunteers in the field. The importance of what we do is real, and we need more help to prevent burnout and make it sustainable.
Recovery is for every Person:
Every individual has value, and their stories lend voice to others struggling in this fight. Include those in recovery as part of the conversation to help with blind spots in recovery reform.
Recovery is for every Family:
Family-centered harm reduction helps mitigate risks and creates a ripple effect for future generations.
Recovery is for every Community:
Empowering a community helps change the community. Bring resources to communities, meet them where they are, and host events that raise awareness.
In conclusion, we were proud to have a space to talk openly about our collective body of work. Whether you joined us in person or virtually, we hope you left the symposium feeling hopeful, connected, and empowered in your own work with recovery.
Before we wrap up, we want to thank all of our sponsors. It is your support and collaboration that makes the INARMS Symposium possible. We’d also like to thank the Division of Mental Health & Addiction for hosting alongside us. We hope to see you all next year!
