From "Double Trouble" to "Dual Recovery": Integrating Models of Recovery in Addiction and Mental Health

Larry Davidson, Raquel Andres-Hyman, Luis Bedregal, Janis Tondora, Jennifer Frey, and Thomas A. Kirk

Abstract

It is increasingly recognised by both the mental health and substance misuse fields that people with mental illnesses and addictions are first and foremost people rather than diagnoses or disorders. As such, they are the experts in what it means to live through and recover from disorders, and their views need to be accessed in order for the person-first approach to become more than rhetoric. This paper reviews two models of recovery, one in mental health and the other in addictions, that were developed in collaboration with advocates and recovering individuals. These are then integrated to produce a strengths-based model of dual recovery.
