dc.description.abstractWith the primary emphasis in addiction research being problem-focused, centered around the pathophysiology and psychobehavioural aspects of active addiction, there is much to learn and many inspiring discoveries to be made to further comprehend the factors and forces which influence one’s pathway toward and through recovery. Recovery capital represents a novel approach to asset-based inquiry with promise to become a currency useful in the psychometric measurement of the intrinsic and extrinsic resources an individual can draw upon to initiate and maintain a managed state of recovery. This paper summarizes a two-part research agenda aimed at understanding how the acquisition of recovery capital during and following residential substance use disorder treatment influences one’s ability to reduce or abstain from alcohol and other drugs over time.
