ABSTRACT

Mobilization of the Substance Use Disorder Recovery Community in the Time of Coronavirus   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Recovery from substance use disorders (SUD) is mostly a relational process defined by improving interdependent relationships, prosocial growth, and quality of life improvements. Recovery affirmative social support -social groups that affirm one's recovery identity - as well as supportive recovery institutions all play a central role in the recovery journey. Given the high degree of socially driven support and reliance on recovery affirmative connection, one may wonder the impact of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] virus and social distancing practices on such a community. So how are those in recovery doing in light of social isolation? The answer may surprise you."
