Recovery Oriented Systems of Care

September 19, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Peer services are providing a long-awaited link to the community that connects participants with lived experience, which research has shown this has one of the strongest potentials to help support the forward journey of recovery.

Livia Davis, MSW, will bring her vast experience in recovery supports, supportive housing development, homelessness assistance, including that of a 300-acre recovery community farm in Denmark. Ms. Davis will share with us the impact of peers, the importance of multiple pathways to recovery, help us with our “how to” of integrating peer workers into systems and teams, and mobilizing the community to work on recovery.  We will work together on gaining an understanding of recovery, the value of peers to our own local behavioral health agencies, primary care providers, and recovery community organizations.

As the Chief Learning Officer at the Center for Social Innovation (C4), Ms. Davis oversees the formulation of strategies for training, learning and development, and the dissemination of knowledge and information.  She currently serves as the C4 project lead for SAMHSA’s State Targeted Response (STR) TA Consortium, launched in 2018 to support states in addressing opioid use disorder prevention, treatment, and recovery. From 2011-2017, Ms. Davis served as the Project Director for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), and Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) initiative, designed to promote and implement recovery supports to address behavioral health needs, which reached over 105,000 people nationwide.  In addition, she served as a recovery consultant on a number of recovery topics including peer-provided recovery supports, recovery-oriented systems of care, peer operated respite programs, core competencies, integration of peers, and the implementation of evidence based practices.


Join us for a wonderful opportunity to work with the incredible Livia Davis!
