HHS Announces Its First-Ever Behavioral Health Recovery Innovation Challenge

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is announcing its first-ever behavioral health Recovery Innovation Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to identify innovations developed by peer-run or community-based organizations, and entities that may partner with them—such as local or state governments, health systems, hospitals, or health plans—that advance recovery. SAMHSA defines recovery as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. As President Biden said in his State of the Union address, we celebrate the 23 million Americans in recovery, and combating the opioid crisis that has touched so many Americans is a key element of the President’s Unity Agenda.
