HRI has released an infographic featuring recent findings from a study that aims to shed light on the process of recovery from mental illness and addiction.
The Recovery Journey Project is a multi-year, longitudinal study conducted and led by researchers at HRI. As an independent research organization, HRI works with treatment providers to collect data from former patients and clients for up to one year after treatment to better understand the progress patients make and challenges they face during recovery.
The primary goal of the project is to provide evidence that can guide and continually improve treatment approaches to help people achieve long-term recovery.
Since 2015, HRI has conducted research with patients who receive residential treatment for addictions at Homewood Health Centre, in Guelph, Ontario. Recent findings were published in an infographic and accompanying background report. The infographic shows changes in various indicators of recovery for patients who were admitted to the Addiction Medicine Service between April 2016 and March 2017 and whose progress was followed from admission to 12 months after completing treatment.
