Abstract

In both Scotland and England the current drug policies show a strong commitment to addressing drug addiction using a model of hope and change to support personal recovery. Strength, Support, Setbacks and Solutions fills a gap in the research base, using a narrative technique to describe personal stories of recovery and how they link to a developmental model of long-term change. They are underpinned by a theoretical model based on three elements: that recovery is a personal journey of change and growth that recovery can be contagious in that it is learned behaviour from other people that individuals' capacity to catch the contagion of recovery is dependent on the resources and supports they have. What this book does is to put personal stories of recovery into this conceptual framework to explore the process of change and its relationship to personal and social resources.
