Williamsville Wellness is at the 4th Annual Clinical Overview of the Recovery Experience (CORE), presented by C4 Recovery Solutions, a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to promoting the design, provision, and monitoring of outcomes-based addiction services.
The conference is a networking opportunity for addiction professionals to advance their understanding of the principles behind abstinence-based recovery programs. The conference is structured as a forum, to increase the collective understanding of recovery processes. The goal is to improve outcomes by better integrating abstinence-based practices and 12-Step principles into therapeutic initiatives.
The CORE conference highlights the critical importance of 12-Step processes and abstinence-based recovery and presents new options for productively integrating useful clinical tools into a larger recovery-oriented framework, including online platforms available to track outcomes.
The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have withstood the test of time, being developed more than 75-years ago, and uses science to emerge as a primary foundation for recovery from both alcoholism and drug addiction. Many conferences focus on science and practice but with an alarming and growing emphasis on drug replacement therapies. Recovery is increasingly playing a secondary role. While science and new clinical tools are important, they cannot replace the 12 Steps as a key means of facilitating the personal growth that is necessary for a sustainable and long-term recovery.
