  12. Recovery is the Focus

  13. Focus: Recovery and Wellness Shifting from a crisis-oriented, professionally-directed, acute-care approach with its emphasis on discrete treatment episodes…. …to a person-directed, recovery management approach that provides long-term supports and recognizes the many pathways to health and wellness.

  14. Recovery-oriented Systems of Care • Build the capacity of communities, organizations, and institutions to support recovery • Build on the strengths of individuals, families, and communities to foster long-term recovery, health, and wellness • Expand the menu of services and supports across the entire recovery continuum • Ensure people in or seeking recovery receive dignity and respect • Lift discriminatory policies and barriers to recovery

  15. Challenges Currently Facing Addiction Service Systems • Unmet Need: < 10 % who need Tx seek treatment or if they do, arrive under coercive influences • Low Pre-Treatment Initiation Rates • Low Retention: > 50 % do not successfully complete treatment • Inadequate Service Dose: significant % do not receive optimum dose of Tx as recommended by NIDA. • Lack of Continuing Care: only 1 in 5 receive post-discharge planning • Recovery Outcomes: most resume using within 3months to one year of discharge from Tx • Revolving Door: > 60% one or more Tx episodes, 24% 3 or more – 50% readmitted within 1 year.

  22. What is Needed: Recovery Capital Recovery Capital is the breadth and depth of internal and external resources that can be drawn upon to initiate and sustain recovery from addiction. (Granfield and Cloud, 1999, 2004; White, 2006) • Physical: includes health (access to care), financial assets, food/clothing/shelter, transportation • Human: includes culture, values, knowledge, education, inner- and interpersonal skills, judgment, and other capacities • Social: includes connectedness to social supports and resources, intimate/family/kinship relationships, and bonds to community and social institutions

  26. Building Communities with Recovery Capital • Build on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families, and communities to be responsible for sustained recovery and wellness • Make services and resources available that help individuals and families throughout the recovery process • Build the capacity of communities, organizations, and institutions to support recovery: recovery-supportive rather than recovery-hostile • Lift discriminatory barriers that impede recovery and wellness

  27. Peer Recovery Support Services

  31. Benefits of Peer Recovery Support Services • Effective outreach, engagement, and portability • Manage recovery as a chronic condition • Stage-appropriate • Cost-effective • Reduce relapse and promote rapid recovery reengagement • Facilitate reentry and reduces recidivism • Reduce emergency room visits • Create stronger and accountable communities

  39. Q: Why don’t we treat addiction like other public health issues? The numbers are staggering: Over 23 million Americans need help Costs the nation $343 billion/year Numbers of young people dying is climbing We have the pictures of the brain. We know that 90% of the time it starts in adolescents. We have proof that people can and do recover: Over 23 million Americans are in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔
