Subscribers to Drug and Alcohol Findings have recently finished reading the content in row 2 of the alcohol treatment matrix, which looked at the generic and cross-cutting issues at the heart of treatment – what treatment is for, how it ‘works’, and who needs it. Row 3 applies the lessons of the last instalments to medical treatments of alcohol dependence, asking what role drugs play in recovery. The evidence challenges readers to place drugs in the context of the practitioners providing or recommending them, the therapeutic environment cultivated by management, organisations, and the local treatment system.
