For more than 50 years research in the substance addiction field has followed the phenomenon of "natural recovery". Over the years the definition has been revised--beginning with those who "aged out" of study cohorts; those who "mature out" due to the aging process; those who cut down to lesser use; and SAMHA's early definition of those who recover without the use of formal treatment. Today's recovery treatment seeks to replace illicit drugs and alcohol with other pharma treatment, rather than the stoic "hold onto the seat of your pants" in the earlier 12-step programs. This book provides excerpts of research and what it means to use "best practices", and follows one case of a person with co-existing mental illness as she makes a first attempt at recovery through the path of non-formal treatment, recovery coaching, and a circle of care intervention. Also provided is the outcome of other "natural" therapy programs using animals and nature as a pathway to inner centering--and finally the "natural recovery" application is outlined. Statistics show that each person has an equal chance of recovering themselves if given individualized support and the environment they need in order to find their meaningful life.
