Addiction.com Story: Beyond Abstinence


January 22, 2016

See this article: A New Definition of Recovery: Beyond Abstinence, by Kendal Patterson. This includes an interview with our Dr. Marc Kern, and a full link to Moderation.org. (Dr. Kern is the Chairman of the Moderation Management Board of Directors.) Note that the topic includes all forms of addictive behavior- Not just alcohol. Supporting research for this article is from a recent paper: What does recovery mean to you? Lessons from the recovery experience for research and practice, by Alexandre B. Laudet, PhD. This research paper goes far beyond alcohol, but applies science to reach many of the same conclusions as those we have already observed.
