Recovery to Practice

Program Summary

The goal of the Recovery to Practice grant program is to support the dissemination of Recovery to Practice curricula across the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social work, nursing, peer support and addiction counseling in Texas. The six grantees will implement and build upon the best practices of the national Recovery to Practice development process. The curricula includes comprehensive, discipline-focused training on recovery-oriented principles and practices.


In 2009, SAMHSA funded the development of the Recovery to Practice curriculum across five mental health professional organizations: the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, the Council on Social Work Education and the InterNational Association of Peer Supporters. NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, was brought into the initiative one year later. The overarching goal of Recovery to Practice is to advance the implementation of recovery-oriented practice among behavioral health practitioners through participation in comprehensive discipline-specific training.

The RTP curriculum development and piloting was a five year process that used SAMHSA’s definition and 10 components of recovery as the foundation.
