Do we need to define 'recovery'?

I am really perplexed as to who really cares about defining "recovery" and whether a definition will benefit anyone other than those doing research. The definition of "a voluntarily maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, and citizenship," as stated in Carlton K. EricksonPhD's article (December 2007 issue), raises the question of who is to judge. Who's to say what is good health and good citizenship?
Defining recovery only divides people, leading some to believe their recovery is better or worse than others'. Recovery is a process happening a day at a time and is acknowledged by individuals in the process by their stating, "I am a recovering alcoholic/drug addict." Do we really need to spend precious resources researching what this means?

Reaching Drug Users

As seen on
To the Editor:
Re ''Preventing AIDS Prevention'' (editorial, Dec. 28):
Besides their effectiveness in preventing the spread of AIDS, needle exchange programs help us to engage drug users who generally do not come up from the underground until they are arrested or hospitalized.
This engagement presents an opportunity to bring these individuals into drug treatment and health care systems at an earlier time, with a potential benefit to both the user and society.
