The Potential of Recovery Capital

Posted in: Recovery Research & Outcomes
This short paper outlines the concept of recovery capital and discusses the impact that the accumulation of individual success has on groups and communities. It seeks to define recovery capital, to capture its flavour and principles, and to look at the intrinsically social forces that are at play in shaping change and in growing communities of recovery. It also outlines how we will be taking forward these ideas in our action research.
