There is a major and drastic shift in the paradigms concerning addictions treatment. To sum up, what happens in the years after the brief interlude in treatment is what is crucial, more than the theory employed for a 30 day rehab visit Thus, the new Recovery Oriented System of Care. This volume sums up the current thinking on the subject, and Washburn University was proud to put the topic, and adopt this text, into the curriculum for graduate students preparing to enter the workforce. Now, systems of standards and accreditation are being formed for sober living facilities, alumni of treatment support groups, recovery mentors/coaches, and I imagine a second edition would be appropriate.

This book is great for those looking for information on recovery management in addictions. I'm only a couple chapters in and I'm learning lots.
John Kelly is brilliant
This is one of the most important books in the field of addition right now. There is a significant need for a shift in the conceptualization and treatment of addiction. This book is the first to coherently argue for a movement towards a more long-term recovery model of addiction at the national, state, and local levels. The book starts with a theoretical overview of `Recovery Oriented Systems Of Care (ROSC)' and the reasons for the needed paradigm shift in our understanding and treatment of chronic substance use disorders. Several leaders in the field then review research findings supporting the need for and benefits of ROSC in both adult and adolescent populations. The book also provides several `real-world' case examples of attempts to adapt current treatment approaches to a more long-term recovery model. Finally, the lead authors discuss the necessary next steps in disseminating a recovery-model framework and the challenges faced. This book is well organized, practical in its focus, and a necessary resource for anyone working in the addiction field.
I got this as a text book but I found it to be helpful and interesting. Lots of good information it it and very helpful.
A useful book utilizing the difference between "addiction medicine" (represented by drug substitution and harm minimization) "recovery medicine" (including twelve step fellowships and abstinence).It is written in the evidence based paradigm that western clinicians love to use. Can be a little dry at times due to the number of statistics, and also does not, in my opionion, give enough of a description of the "miracle" of recovery. Nevertheless this book is a good bridge between science and evangelism.
A great resource for anyone in the field.
A perfect anthology on the subject of Recovery Management.
