How can we leverage social connection in support of addiction recovery?

George Braucht, of Brachtworks Consulting, shared practical application resources around  addiction recovery and social connection:

  1. Evolutionary science on within and between group development ((https://www.prosocial.world; Atkins, P. W. B., Wilson, D. S., & Hayes, W. C. (2019; Prosocial: Using evolutionary science to build productive, equitable and collaborative groups. Oakland, CA: New Harbinger)),
  2. Reciprocal community development tasks as an extension of Asset-based Community Development ((Best, D. (2019). Pathways to recovery and desistance: The role of the social contagion of hope) and
  3. Social identity mapping (http://www.socialidentitynetwork.com/sim-info/). Recovery (all behavioral health!)/recovery residence/recovery community development and research is moving to the next level of the social model of person-centered care.
