WHAT IS “EVIDENCE-BASED” RECOVERY?

A relatively new term (dating back to the 1990s) in the field of recovery, both from substance abuse and from mental health issues, “evidence-based” refers to interventions for which there is consistent scientific evidence showing that they improve client outcomes. The term refers to principles of effectiveness as demonstrated by such sources as peer-reviewed journals. It has been defined as recovery based on a mixture of clinical research, expert consensus, and practitioner experience.
