Between 2010 and 2011, Voices and Faces of Recovery hosted community listening forums in 4 states to identify barriers individuals face in accessing recovery services in their communities. They produced this toolkit to help others host forums in their own states or communities. It includes a checklist of steps for organizing and promoting the forum, a suggested timeline, and sample templates for communications with participants, speakers, and the media.
