Dr. Rivera presents about data collection and evaluation of Recover Alaska program
Recover Alaska is a statewide effort supported by the Rasmuson Foundation, The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, Mat-Su Health Foundation, State of Alaska-Department of Health and Social Services, Southcentral Foundation, and other stakeholders to "reduce the harm caused by excessive consumption of alcohol in our state."
The focus of the evaluation is two-fold: (1) to provide constructive, ongoing information to inform and facilitate joint efforts to reduce the harm caused by excessive consumption of alcohol in Alaska, and (2) to assess both the process and outcomes of Recover Alaska at the state level. It is anticipated that this will be a multi-year evaluation project.
Earlier this year, Recover Alaska launched the campaign, "Day 001 - Voices of Recovery." This video series has been airing on television.
