‘Recovery’: meaning and implications for treatment
One of our selection of hot topics – important issues which sometimes generate heated debate. Since 2008 the “recovery” objective has been at the heart of British drug treatment policy. Where did it come from and what does it mean for treatment services?
This intervention based on housing first led to significantly greater reductions in drinking problems after 14 months, but not in problems with other substances.
A study exploring the challenges of defining and measuring ‘outcomes’ and ‘success’ in substance use treatment environments, from the perspective of staff and participants in two different US harm-reduction counselling programmes.
Confirms findings of few measurable negative consequences of the 1997 termination of US federal disability benefits for disabling substance disorders, a change intended to eliminate potential disincentives to work.
