The Power of Relationships in Recovery

Please register to download the white paper


During the past three decades we have achieved a greater understanding of addiction as a chronic brain disease.  We now approach the treatment of addiction as we would any other acute illness, like diabetes or heart disease. And while we have lots of different pharmacological, psychotherapeutic and psychoeducational approaches in our treatment repertoire, there is one aspect of addiction treatment that we may have overlooked: the power of relationships. 

In this white paper, Michael M. Miller, M.D, medical director of the Herrington Recovery Center at Rogers Memorial Hospital, discusses the importance of the therapeutic relationships during the course of treatment as a fundamental factor of a sustained recovery.
