This is an interesting well-thought-through presentation of the recovery pathways. My main problem with this text is that it is overly structured. This creates a sense that recovery is a process that fall within defined patterns and expected stages. Although this way of thinking is inviting practitioners for application, it, at the same time, moves them away from the idea of fluidity of the recovery that might not have structure at all. The detailed break down of the ideas offers safety of clarity, but I wonder to what extent it could be applied in real chaotic lives of patients?
