Monthly Pathway Session on Peer Support with Dr. John F. Kelly
Peer support for both loved ones and their family members is correlated with higher rates of successful long-term recovery. If anyone has done the research on this, it’s Dr. Kelly. Please join us for why peer support/mutual-help works for addressing addiction.
Dr. Kelly is the Elizabeth R. Spallin Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, which is the first professorship in Addiction Medicine at Harvard and will carry his name thereafter. He is the founder and Director of the Recovery Research Institute at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), the Program Director of the Addiction Recovery Management Service (ARMS) and the Associate Director of the Center for Addiction Medicine at MGH.
