Date and Time
Sessions will be available On-Demand
Collegiate recovery programs are able to shift people away from a lifestyle with inherent risks for continued crime involvement to a career pathway that involves personal growth when it may be most effective. This presentation offers a summary of current research, clinical observations, and recommendations regarding college students in substance use disorder recovery with prior involvement in the criminal justice system. The continuum of care model (McLellan, Lewis, O’Brien, & Kleber, 2000), the peer-based recovery services model (Laudet & Humphreys, 2013), the sequential intercept model (Heilbrun, Mulvey, DeMatteo, Schubert, & Griffin, 2015), and the disease model of addiction (Le Moal & Koob, 2007) will guide the theoretical underpinnings of this presentation.
