Executive Summary

STATE OF RECOVERY SCIENCE AND THE ROLE OF COLLEGIATE RECOVERY

Studies of recovery have long been an offshoot of addiction science, focused largely on pathology and symptomology. Addiction science focuses on how people get sick. Instead, the Center for Young Adult Addiction and Recovery has partnered with a variety of colleagues and stakeholders in order to explore how people get well. This standalone, interdisciplinary, evidence-driven field of recovery science is a break away from traditional addiction science.

RECOVERY SCIENCE RESEARCH COLLABORATIVE

The Recovery Science Research Collaborative (RSRC) is organized to unite recovery researchers from across the country in an effort to team up on common research initiatives. The RSRC enables professionals from a variety of backgrounds to meet and discuss the theoretical underpinnings of recovery, best metrics to assess recovery, and to disseminate critical findings across the field of recovery. This think-tank style event creates an environment of true collaboration that empowers recovery researchers to move the field forward.

If you are interested in more information about the RSRC, contact Jessica McDaniel at jmcdan33@kennesaw.edu.
