“Building Recovery Systems and Communities”
“Recovery communities are independent but their creation must have strategic support from those involved in delivering public health outcomes from within the local authority. Recovery communities are not a threat to treatment services but they are, and should always be, independent. Commissioners of new systems need to ensure that recovery communities are sufficiently resourced. Moreover, these resources need to be tied to the most flexible of governance arrangement. If possible a dedicated recovery community centre could be provided.
Probably the best UK example of this can be found in Halifax, Calderdale at the Basement Project.”
