“You are in recovery if you say you are”* - Views on recovery in drug treatment

Does recovery from addiction mean achieving abstinence or getting control over substance-use? Does the concept of recovery describe a process or an aim? The views may differ depending on form of treatment and political conviction.

popNAD, Dansk Psykolog Forenings Selskab for Misbrugspsykologi and the Department of Anthropology, University of Copenhagen are pleased to welcome you to this seminar on recovery in drug treatment. The seminar will give you an international view on recovery and also a look at what it might mean for drug treatment in Scandinavia.
