About the Book

The addictions treatment field is reaching a tipping point that is revolutionizing the ways that behavioral health leaders think about people with alcohol and other drug problems—and how services and systems are developed. Recovery Management / Recovery Oriented Systems of Care contains six monographs by renowned recovery advocate William L. While and colleagues. These monographs provide insight and analysis of the topics important to today’s addiction counselors and recovery coaches: recovery-oriented systems of care, recovery management, peer-based recovery services, and treating addiction as a chronic condition that requires ongoing management.
