About Us

We are an interdisciplinary reading group that meets to discuss a recent journal article on a topic related to recovery science and/or harm reduction. We meet the third Thursday of each month from 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM ET.

We are open to all: people who use drugs or in recovery, family and friends, peer recovery specialists, care providers, policy makers, students, researchers, and anyone interested.

Organized by RICARES and Brown University School of Public Health, we are supported by the New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center.
