The fields of Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery are traditionally separated by distinct philosophies, funding mechanisms, and physical spaces. Efforts to build outcomes-driven, Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care in our communities are emboldened by the emergence and integration of Peer Recovery Support Services (PRSS), and by lessons drawn from recovery research. Join PRSS systems specialist Dean LeMire of the National Recovery Institute for an interactive webinar investigating the roles of clients, their peers, and recovery management strategies in improving treatment and recovery outcomes.

Who should attend?
This webinar is designed for clinicians, clinical supervisors, program managers, prevention agencies, community coalitions and executives in substance abuse and mental health agencies, Managing Entities and DCF program staff.

Presented by:
Dean LeMire is a member of the National Recovery Institute and serves as an Adjunct Faculty member. He is a person in long-term recovery and a New Hampshire native who has served in roles touching several disciplines of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) care. Dean worked in direct services at a sober living facility soon after finding his own recovery pathway; his conceptions of recovery broke open during a Peer Recovery Support Services (PRSS) provider training, and he has since worked to scale up PRSS delivered through Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) across his home state. Dean is committed to a community-based approach to the SUD services continuum of care, having played a pivotal role in the foundations of recovery-oriented organizations across New Hampshire, including HIV/HCV and overdose prevention efforts such as peer-delivered naloxone distribution programs and Syringe Services Programs. Dean has trained 200 recovery coaches in various PRSS trainings, has served on the NH Governor’s Commission on Alcohol and Other Drugs Recovery Task Force since its 2014 inception and has led and worked behind the scenes on successful public policy changes affecting people with SUD and their families. He loves un-learning, learning, facilitating learning, and igniting latent passions and talents in others. In 2017 he was honored with the New Futures Madeline Demuele Recovery Scholarship for Excellent and Exemplary Contributions to the Delivery of Recovery Services and was voted 2018 Recovery Provider of the Year by the New Hampshire Providers Association. Dean is a 2010 graduate of the University of New Hampshire.
