How to participate

Attendance at a Recovery Conference is by invitation only, with selections made based on review of information provided by each applicant. The steps leading to participation in a Recovery Conference are as follows:

  1. Indicate your interest and stay informedby registering on the Conference Website. To do this, click the signup tab found at top right of the web page, then fill out a short profile description and submit. Your sign up to the Recovery community is free and allows access to information concerning upcoming Conferences. We do not share your contact information and we keep communication limited to important conference-related information.

  2. In certain instances, attendees of previous recovery conferences may need to create a new profile using the form.

  3. 3. Once registered, you can and should login and enter or update your full profile by going here. The full profile is required in order to submit an abstract and to register for the next meeting.

  4. Stay alert for an email from the conference chairs announcing the call for abstracts. To submit an abstract, you must enter your full profile, unless you already have done so. Submitted abstracts can be viewed and edited up until the time when the conference chairs close the submission period.

Once you have received an invitation, the registration link will become active for you when logged into the Recovery website.
