Beyond Abstinence: Well-Being Also Matters

Alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment and recovery research typically focuses on outcomes such as ‘days abstinent.’ Yet the degree to which individuals may be functioning better physically, socially and psychologically, how happy they may be, and their levels of self-esteem may be equally important as measures of progress. Little is known about whether such changes occur, when they may occur, and for whom, as people progress in recovery. This study sought to improve understanding of recovery milestones and points of vulnerability and growth.
