Blog: The Work of Recovery by William L. White

“Research on addiction recovery is quite scant compared to the volumes of research on addiction-related pathologies and clinical interventions.  Additionally, some of the most important research on addiction recovery is buried in academic journals rarely if ever read by the people who need it most–addiction treatment professionals and people needing, seeking or in recovery.  Such is the case of studies on the role of work in addiction recovery.”

So here’s the question: if employment is such a critical factor in recovery initiation and recovery stability, and if addiction treatment programs really are committed to science-informed addiction treatment; then why do we not see vocational education and training programs integrated as a service option within all addiction treatment programs?”
