What is Recovery?
Many people mistakenly believe that recovery is simply a matter of abstinence. Get the addict to stop drinking, using, or engaging in addictive behavior – detox them – and they’ll be in recovery. If it were only that simple, we wouldn’t have the problems we do today.
The fact is that the field of recovery research is just beginning to grow. Treatment professionals and researchers now believe that there are many aspects of recovery, and there are numerous pathways to follow. There is no single solution that works for everyone.
While 12-step groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous or Gamblers Anonymous, for example, are the most common, there are really many ways to recover. Some individuals can be in recovery and also be in a maintenance program for their addiction. They may be sober, have good personal health, and be on a maintenance program, such as methadone or buprenorphine. This is a recent recognition, since previously it was believed that a person couldn’t be on a maintenance program and be considered to be in recovery.
Recovery is a process of change through which an individual achieves abstinence, as well as improved health, wellness and quality of life. It is increasingly being defined as long-term and wellness-centered. It involves an ongoing process of growth, self-discovery, self-change, and reclaiming the self. As such, recovery is shifting from a crisis-oriented, professionally-directed, acute-care approach with its emphasis on isolated treatment episodes, to more of a recovery management approach that provides long-term supports and recognizes the many pathways to wellness and health.
