Pathways To Recovery

Recovery is complex. Aside from being extremely difficult for the person recovering, there are many different ways that you can approach recovery. The Recovery Research Institute lists three pathways to recovery: clinical pathways, non-clinical pathways, and self-management pathways. Different pathways work for different individuals. It is important to keepC in mind all the ways that you can approach your recovery. Here is a bit for information on each of the three pathways.

Clinical Pathways

According to the Recovery Research Institute, clinical pathways are “recovery processes aided by the services of a healthcare provider, clinician, or other credentialed professional.” Included under the clinical pathway umbrella are various therapy methods, treatment with medication, as well as inpatient and outpatient services. The latter is broken up into four levels: outpatient services, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization, clinically managed low to high-intensity residential services, and medically managed intensive inpatient services. 

The lowest level, outpatient services, have the individual attend services for a few hours a week. They are then allowed to return to their daily lives after the short sessions. 

The next level, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization, usually involves a greater amount of time spent at the facilities, then the patient can return home.

The following level, clinically managed low to high-intensity residential services, provides treatment for the whole day. The goal is to stabilization the individual that is a danger to themselves. 

The highest level of care, medically managed intensive inpatient services, also provides 24-hour care. This stage is for individuals “suffering from severe instability and imminent danger.”

Non-Clinical Pathways

According to the Research Recovery Institute, non-clinical pathways are “recovery processes that do not involve a trained clinician, but are often community-based and utilize peer support.” Included in this pathway are various recovery services that include centers, support systems, and other services such as peer-based, education-based, employment-based, and faith-based recovery services. Aside from these supports and services, there are recovery residences such as sober living homes or halfway houses that are included in non-clinical pathways. 12 step programs are also included in this pathway. 

Self Management Pathways

According to the Research Recovery Institute, self-management pathways are “recovery processes that involve no formal services, sometimes referred to as ‘natural recovery.’” This pathway includes self-care that the individual would do on their own.
