This monograph emphasizes that the addictions treatment field is reaching a tipping point that is revolutionizing the ways in which behavioral health leaders think about people with alcohol and other drug problems, and consequently how services and systems are developed.
At its core, this movement represents a shift away from a crisis-oriented, professionally directed, acute-care approach with its emphasis on isolated treatment episodes, to a recovery management approach that provides long-term supports and recognizes the many pathways to healing.
This monograph presents a systematic review of the literature to support this transition and the concrete strategies that will help make the vision of recovery-oriented service systems a reality.
