Recovery Research Networks


About the Program

Through the Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative, or NIH HEAL Initiative® and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH supports the Recovery Research Networks. This program focuses on developing multi-stakeholder networks (researchers, payors, providers, people in recovery) to support the development of infrastructure to advance the science of long-term recovery. Five projects form the Consortium on Addiction Recovery Science (CoARS). Collectively, these projects are developing resources to support recovery research with a focus on community-based recovery centers, justice-involved youth, family-based recovery, recovery in rural settings, and integrated networks of care.
