ARHE requires its Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Donors to adhere to the Ethics Policy, over and above any contractual requirements existing between them and ARHE.

  • Pathways to Recovery- sessions in this content area will explore the multiple pathways to and in recovery. Sessions may identify how programs are integrating multiple pathways and ideas about recovery or explore how they are building community among students or those involved despite differences in pathways.
  • Advocacy- sessions in this content area will explore the levels of advocacy within the recovery community, collegiate recovery communities or programs, recovery high schools, alternative peer groups, governmental relations, etc. These sessions may explore the role advocacy plays in the work presenters are doing and what that may look like for different people or programs.
  • Research- sessions in this content area will be focused on the relevant research to the field of substance use disorders and recovery, particularly in relation to collegiate recovery, recovery high schools, and alternative peer groups. Some questions or ideas to consider may be: What’s the latest research? Studies on underserved student populations. Gaps in the research- what else do we need to know? Updated research studies from past years.
  • Treatment- sessions in this content area will be focused on treatment modalities, the role of treatment centers in collegiate recovery, recovery high schools, and alternative peer groups, or how to build and foster those relationships between treatment facilities and the programs mentioned above. Some ideas to consider would be: bridging the gap between treatment and high school or college campuses, the role of medication assisted treatment, or other services provided by treatment facilities.
  • Building Recovery Ready Communities- sessions in this content area will explore how their programs are working to provide programming and/or outreach to build solid continuums of care across their field, their campus, the broader community, etc.
  • Technology- sessions in this content area will explore how we are leveraging technology for the betterment of treatment, collegiate recovery, recovery high schools, or alternative peer groups. Some ideas or topics could include social media, marketing, improving communications, etc.
  • Programming- sessions in this content area will include information on the vast array of programming offered by collegiate recovery communities or programs, recovery high schools, alternative peer groups, and other recovery resources. Some ideas to consider are: sober events, residential support, student organizations, professional development for students, navigating a sober social life, outreach to the broader community.
  • Policy & Procedure- sessions in this content area will help professionals explore how other programs are building policies and procedures within their programs or institutions. These are important conversations as these fields continue to grow and expand. Some ideas to consider could be: policy building, navigating the red-tape or perceived politics of systems, compliance.
  • The Fundamentals: Building a New Program- sessions in this content area will explore the basics of building new programs (collegiate recovery, recovery high schools, or alternative peer groups). Some ideas addressed in these sessions may include: identifying potential partners and key stakeholders, building advisory boards, and early developmental stages of these programs.
  • Funding & Development- sessions in this content area will focus primarily on sustainability and sharing information on funding sources or how programs have managed institutional support.
  • Social Justice– Adams, Bell, and Griffin (1997) define social justice as both a process and a goal. “The goal of social justice education is full and equal participation of all groups in a society that is mutually shaped to meet their needs. Social justice includes a vision of society that is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure.” Sessions in this content area should be focused on the topic of underserved populations across the treatment and recovery spectrum. Ideas to consider are: how to recognize and dismantle systems of oppression thereby creating equitable spaces for all students; broad, systems-based topics (power, privilege and oppression); population-specific programming (veterans, LGBTQIA, racially minoritized groups, mental health, international, first generation students).
