The Role of Recovery Capital in the Community Reentry of Prisoners with Substance Use Disorders
Lyons, Thomas; Lurigio, Arthur J.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v49 n7 p445-455 2010
This article examines the concept of recovery capital, which is based on a socioeconomic understanding of addiction. Substance abuse treatment programs, especially those in the criminal justice system, should recognize the important relationship between abstinence and recovery capital. A program is described which fosters recovery capital among former prisoners with substance use disorders who are reentering the community.
