• Strengths Planning for Building Recovery Capital

    For decades, addiction professionals have been providing screening and assessment instruments that evaluate problem severity, complexity, and chronicity, but offer little data on the internal and external resources individuals and families can mobilize in resolving such problems (White & Cloud, 2008).


  • Social Determinants of Health and Behavioral Health Challenges

    The behavioral health field is engaged in a movement to expand the conventional medical treatment model of care that emphasizes diagnosis and subsequent treatment to the more comprehensive and inclusive model of population health. Improving “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group” (Kindig & Stoddard, 2003) is the critical focus of the population health model.
