Recovery: a common vision for the fields of mental health and addictions.

Author information

  • 1Boston University, Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, MA 02215, USA.


The vision of recovery is reshaping the fields of mental health and addiction services. This paper reviews how this broad vision is shaping common goals, principles, values and strategies across the two fields. We further examine how a common vision of recovery can positively impact the treatment of co-occurring disorders and speculate on how this vision can bridge the seeming differences between these two fields and reshape a mutual understanding of the essentials of recovery from severe mental illness and addiction.
