"The Continuum of Care"

Thanks for your interest in joining us as a speaker at Innovations in Recovery 2020! We can’t wait to hear your ideas about how we can elevate the industry and help more people heal together.

For this year’s IIR conference schedule, sessions will be organized into four unique days of content that follow the continuum of care. Each day will focus on a different stage of the patient journey, from detox to extended care and beyond.

As an expert in your field, we invite you to look through this sample schedule to learn more about how we plan to structure each day within the continuum of care theme. This isn’t an all-inclusive list by any means. But we hope it can give you an idea of our vision for IIR, and hopefully it will spark an idea for how you might like to contribute.

For day one of IIR, we’re starting where your patients start. How can we build trust with our communities and help each individual take the first step toward finding the right treatment them?
