On Monday, December 9, 2013, the White House will live stream a conference on drug policy reform giving recovery advocates an opportunity to speak on the subjects of addiction science and stigma. The summit will be hosted by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and will feature presentations from representatives of organizations like the Recovery Research Institute, Faces & Voices of Recovery, and Medication-Assisted Recovery Services (MARS).
At noon Dr. John Kelly of the Recovery Research Institute, based at the Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, will discuss how addiction science and research can help remove the stigma of addiction. Also on the conference schedule is a showing of the trailer for the recovery advocacy film The Anonymous People, associated with the advocacy organization Faces & Voices of Recovery.
