What is ‘recovery’ and what does it mean for the roles of treatment and of doctors? This analysis based on the last ten years’ writings on the subject draws a parallel with mental health, where recovery in terms of a meaningful and self-directed life is reserved for persisting severe illness resistant to ‘cure’ via treatment.
Good to explore meanings we think we share – when we might have quite a different understanding. The use of full recovery could be seen as another way of suggesting people should become drug free.
