Title: Wherever You Go, There You Are: An Addiction Treatment Approach Created by Those in Recovery
Who would know better as to what has best facilitated their recovery from addiction and what may have been detrimental than someone who’s been there? “If you were to create an addiction treatment model, what would it look like?” was the question posed to patients in recovery. Each patient’s background and journey through addiction to recovery will be presented, culminating with their recommendations for a recovery treatment program of their design. Then, deciphering what each proposal had in common, the concepts were distilled down to a collaboratively created addiction treatment strategy which will be outlined in this presentation.
