1. One of the issues that is an old one in addiction treatment but still very lively today has to do with the question of what is necessary to recover from an addiction problem: must a person be abstinent, or can a person learn to engage in the behaviour in low risk ways? What is your view on this question?
2. Comment on the evidence that 70 per cent or more people who are abstinent at the end of a treatment program will relapse to alcohol or drug use at sometime within the next year, and half of these will have their first relapse within the first three months after completing treatment.
3. There are many – too many – interesting websites on recovery and on addiction treatment. Go to the Drug and Alcohol Registry of Treatment website: http://www.drugandalcoholhelpline.ca/. Find out what this site is all about. Click on links and look at two of the mutual aid fellowships listed there. You will also find “Health Canada – Canada’s Drug Strategy” listed there. Click and find the document titled “Best Practices: Substance Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hl-vs/pubs/adp-apd/bp-mp-abuse-abus/index_e.html
What differences do you notice in the ways that addiction problems are depicted in the mutual aid materials and the professional materials?
