The concept of recovery and its practical application
Recovery is a contested concept and definitions of it are scattered across various contexts and disciplines, contributing to the confusion that surrounds it. This article explores various conceptualisations of recovery and proposes a pragmatic way of viewing it as distributed across a continuum of clinical, social and personal domains. It also suggests the need to conceptualise recovery from the perspectives of different cultures.
