NEW: Recovery/Remission from Substance Use Disorders: An Analysis of Reported Outcomes in 415 Scientific Reports, 1868-2011 by William L. White, MA reviews 415 scientific studies of recovery outcomes (79 community studies, 276 adult clinical studies, and 60 adolescent clinical studies) conducted with clinically and culturally diverse populations in multiple countries over the past century. The paper answers the 5 critical questions below and includes a way for communities to develop their own measures. (April 2012)

  1. How many persons are in recovery from substance use disorders in the United States?
  2. What percentage of those who develop AOD problems eventually achieve remission/recovery?
  3. What is the rate of remission/recovery for persons whose problems are severe enough to warrant professional treatment?
  4. Does the rate of remission/recovery for adolescents following specialized addiction treatment differ from that of adults who have completed such specialized treatment?
  5. How can local communities establish baseline remission/recovery prevalence data?

NEW: The Recovery Carrier by Bill White describes the qualities and contributions of people, usually in recovery, who make recovery infectious to those around them by their openness about their recovery experiences, their quality of life and character, and the compassion they exhibit for those still suffering. (April 2012)
