Abstract

The innovative approach I have taken begs the question: how might I invest in myself and others by creating an encouraging support network for those in early or non-traditional recovery from addiction to substances? I figured I could either create an online meeting for those who are not “truly” sober or I could create an online meeting focused on education and sharing/listening to personal stories.

This project is important because individuals utilizing medically assisted treatment (MAT) are typically shunned at traditional meetings, and my solution offers them a safe space to network, learn, and create a healthy support system. I collected data from a targeted audience, and applied feedback from a utilitarian approach to create a unique solution that makes recovery more accessible to a demographic that has been left behind. I experienced positive impacts on my stakeholders, as participants were educated and welcomed, my team member and participants began to exude a sense of purpose and gratitude in sharing their experiences, including myself.
