Vision

An international initiative from Academics and Clinicians
for people, their families and communities
who face addiction and mental health challenges.

Principles and Drivers

  • Mental health and addiction related problems are complex but treatable.
  • No single treatment is appropriate for everyone.
  • Treatment should be readily available.
  • Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual.
  • Treatment takes into account the person and the family needs and wishes.
  • Medications and psychological interventions should be combined.
  • Treatment plan must be monitored and modified as necessary.
  • Longer term recovery support is crucial, as lapses do occur.
  • Risk-reduction interventions are necessary.
  • Family members have a right to participate in and receive services.
