Current writing and research on addiction recovery is inconclusive about what is effective in promoting recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction. This thesis focuses on the narrative commentaries of people currently in recovery in an effort to determine what elements may be common among them that promote and sustain their recovery conditions. In depth interviews were conducted with eight individuals who offered personal details about their addictions and their recovery. Analysis of their narratives reveals a variety of thematic conditions related to the maintenance of sobriety and other personal goals.
