  • Justin Luke Riley, CEO, Young People in Recovery, delivered a dynamic and compelling keynote speech, offering a message of hope and call to action to advocate for recovery and reduce stigma.
  • Stephanie Woodard, SAPTA – Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, provided important updates on the state’s Recovery-Friendly Workplace Program created to reduce the stigma of substance use and encourage workplaces to support treatment and recovery.
  • Trey Delap, Political Director of Recovery, PAC, challenged recovery-oriented voters to get involved and make their vote count in the upcoming elections.

Person-Directed Recovery

Person-centered recovery is directed, as much as possible by the person – including decisions about who should be included in the process.  The planning identifies just a few small, but meaningful, short-term changes that the individual can focus on helping to reduce some of the barriers or challenges moving forward.  Person centered care should be central to all recovery frameworks.
