Abstract

The importance of recovery capital as a resource for individuals to draw upon to initiate and sustain recovery from problem sub- stance use is a growing theme. With recovery underpinning the Scottish governments’ strategy for responding to drug problems, it is important to explore the evidence base regarding the relationship between recovery capital and addiction problem severity, and whether recovery capital may be predictive of addiction problem severity. Hierarchical regression analysis found of the four constructs used to measure recovery capital, physical capital was predictive of 26% of the variance in addiction problem severity (p D .05). Policy and practice implications are explored.
