Intersection Series: Prevention, Recovery, and Harm Reduction


The Peer Recovery Center of Excellence collaborated with the Prevention Technology Transfer Center to host three webinars around the intersection of prevention and recovery. These webinars were followed with a two-part series on the intersection of harm reduction, prevention and recovery. Please find the recordings, presentation slides and related resources below.


The first two webinars in the series, The Intersection of Prevention & Recovery, Parts I & II, were designed to inform and raise awareness of prevention and recovery community professionals about the intersection between SUD prevention and recovery approaches. This series demonstrated how the fields of prevention and recovery share common goals and explore ways professionals can collaborate and coordinate activities that work toward improving community health and wellness.

The follow up to these two webinars focused on Where Prevention and Recovery are Working. Our panelists drew from the experiences of multiple recovery and prevention communities and provided models of successful community-based programs working within the intersection of prevention and recovery. The goal for the panel was not to provide a set of complete solutions, but rather to stimulate discussion, highlight practical approaches to advancing community resilience and collaboration that are applicable to many communities across the nation.

The final two webinars in this series, The Intersection of Harm Reduction, Prevention & Recovery Parts I & II, illustrated the common goals within the fields of prevention, recovery, and harm reduction such as: reducing the adverse health and social consequences of chaotic substance use, demonstrate the multiple points of intervention across the spectrum of substance use, and how to develop coordinated strategies at individual and community levels to address chaotic substance use. The panelists took a close look at how race and social determinants of health influence the frequency, access, and type of services provided to diverse populations.
