This theoretical but highly accessible book helps develop understanding about the philosophy of recovery, what the supporting evidence is and how workers and managers can apply this in a more recovery friendly way as well as what they can do to assess and evidence these changes.
It will examine evidence from a number of international recovery studies and examples of successes in the UK where established recovery communities and groups, some peer projects and some services, have changed their philosophy to a recovery-oriented one.
