In addition to the many challenges that they experience, people in recovery are dealing with a change in or lack of support structures that that will make it challenging to engage with or stay in recovery.

GPS for Recovery enhances treatment engagement and supports sobriety while ensuring a excellent, consistent, and evidence-based. They provide people with trauma-sensitive spaces where they can explore their personal history with addiction, generational trauma, and feelings of shame, guilt and isolation that can be barriers to sobriety. Participants build communities of mutual respect and reclaim their self-esteem and courage as they travel on the road to recovery. GPS for Recovery groups can be led by peer leaders and clinical providers. These groups effectively increase program capacity and ensure consistent clinical outcomes and enhance other modalities of care.

GPS is integrated successfully in residential treatment, outpatient programs, methadone/suboxone clinics and more. Diverse populations including men, women, mothers, those living with homelessness, currently or formerly incarcerated, those mandated for treatment, and those engaged with child protective services find solace in these groups. GPS can be used in programs and with participants who enlist diverse approaches to recovery.

" I was a mom struggling with addiction, attending lots of treatment groups. But GPS was my missing piece. It gave me back my self-respect, helped me maintain sobriety, and made me a much better mom. I now lead GPS groups for moms working on their recovery"

-Erica Napolitan, Maternal Substance Use and Recovery Specialist

"What I love about GPS is its structure and adaptability. We can use curricula for the people we serve while maintaining the structure of GPS. It is a trauma-informed model that we use in all our groups now."

-Debra Bercuvitz, Director, Perinatal Substance Use Initiative,

MA Department of Public Health
