Solutions to alcohol and drug problems – is treatment a prerequisite?
2007 (English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Most of what we know about recovery from alcohol and drug problems comes from treatment outcome studies. However, although this was for long disregarded by treatment providers as well as main stream researchers, reports of unassisted recovery or “self-change” have been common. This presentation will give a brief historical overview over research in this area, and present some results from recent Swedish and other studies on the prevalence of, and processes underlying, such solutions.
