Infographic: new findings from study exploring long-term recovery from addiction

HRI has released a new infographic featuring recent findings from a study shedding 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.

Since 2015, HRI has conducted research with patients receiving inpatient addiction treatment at Homewood Health Centre, in Guelph, Ontario. The latest infographic shows changes in various indicators of recovery for patients admitted to the program between April 2018 and March 2019.

Findings from the project are helping to guide treatment improvements to support long-term recovery.
