Recovery support services are designed to help individuals with substance use disorders enter into and navigate systems of care, stay engaged in the recovery process, and live full lives in their communities. Technology offers one more avenue by which behavioral health professionals can support patients’ recovery, thereby increasing recovery participation and decreasing the likelihood of relapse. This presentation focuses on how the reach of recovery support services can be extended through the use of technologies (e.g., the web, social media, smartphone apps, and cell phone), which is especially important for individuals residing in rural/frontier areas with limited access to services. Thus, expanding access to recovery support services through the use of technologies can help individuals achieve positive health outcomes.
