During the past decade, the concept of recovery and its related incarnations (e.g., recovery management, recovery – oriented systems of care) have emerged as a new organizing paradigm for addiction treatment 1 and the larger behavioral healthcare arena. 2 While recent progress has brought us closer to a definition of recovery, 3 a quantitative picture of recovery prevale nce and recovery rates remains an enigma at professional and public levels. Elaborate data-collection systems have been established to measure the incidence and prevalence of–8–alcohol-and other drug-related (AOD) problems, but there are few methodological  ly sophisticated counterparts that regularly report changes in the prevalence of recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs) in the United States.

Sobre a UNIAD

A Unidade de Pesquisa em álcool e Drogas (UNIAD) foi fundada em 1994 pelo Prof. Dr. Ronaldo Laranjeira e John Dunn, recém-chegados da Inglaterra. A criação contou, na época, com o apoio do Departamento de Psiquiatria da UNIFESP. Inicialmente (1994-1996) funcionou dentro do Complexo Hospital São Paulo, com o objetivo de atender funcionários dependentes.
