Program Description

The focus of this ECHO is to expand the skills, abilities and knowledge base of Recovery Support Services (RSS) professionals using the latest identified best practices both nationally and locally. The primary issues to be addressed include public policy, client advocacy, stigma reduction, and organizational capacity building. Education and advocacy are needed to bring awareness and change that includes issues of discrimination and prejudice against people in recovery and treatment settings. The continued development of RSS is dependent on changing laws and policies that continue to influence public opinion and the ability to expand services within the behavioral health system. Texas is a large and diverse state making continuity of peer services challenging, especially the ability to maintain the delivery of services using the latest best practices. This program assists the RSS community in staying up to date on evidence-based practices, as well as the emerging policy landscape
