Staff in recovery who relapse

10 March 2015

When staff who are in recovery experience relapse this can be challenging not only for them, but for their colleagues and managers as well.  Dr Peter Adams and Dr Helen Warren have written a paper setting out ways of addressing these issues and supporting those involved.  Titled: Responding to the risks associated with the relapse of recovering staff members within addiction services it was published in Substance Use & Misuse, 45:951-967.  We do have the authors’ permission to provide copies of this paper.  Requests to the dapaanz office.
