Model of expected client recovery process in the SUPPORT program.
By increasing options available to clients through its expanded infrastructure and flexible services, the program improves client’s sense of agency (i.e., control) over their recovery. Increased agency improves motivation to participate in treatment and supportive services, as well as other aspects of recovery capital (e.g., social support and self-efficacy). Improved social capital reduces barriers to recovery and leads to improved recovery outcomes. The model also asserts that improved recovery capital and services support the individual through a relapse (should one happen) and reflects process-based definitions central to current recovery policy.
