  • MAT patients who achieve recovery via these three dimensions, continued participation in medication maintenance, or eventual tapering, and recovery without medication support represent varieties of recovery experience and matters of personal choice, not the boundary of passage from the status of addiction to the status of recovery. (White, 2012, Journal of Addictive Diseases)
  • Quite simply, we don’t get to tell others when they are in or are not in recovery, and our recovery coaches already know that.
