Recovery Capital and Treatment Courts: A New Approach to Improve Client Outcomes
September 17, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
While utilizing substance use disorder treatment is critical in the drug court model, what other elements are important to bring about long-term recovery for clients? Research over the past two decades has found that individuals with strong concentrations of personal, social, and community capital are more likely to sustain long-term recovery. But what exactly does this mean, and how do we operationalize this in the treatment court model?
This session will introduce participants to the concept and definition of Recovery Capital. The current research findings on the importance of assessing and building personal, social, and community capital to strengthen long-term recovery (long past the exit from drug court) will be reviewed. Teams will learn how to move these concepts into practice throughout their program, with a specific focus on applying the recovery capital framework in staffing and case management.
After this session, participants will be able to:
• Define recovery capital, including the domains of personal, social and community capital
• Recognize opportunities in their own communities to make connections with providers, agencies, and supports
• Develop staffing and case management procedures that focus on increasing capital across the domains
• Learn available tools for recovery capital measurement and assessment.
