Evidenced Based Practices and Value Based Services for Recovery are new concurrent phenomena in mental health. “Evidence-based care is an approach to classifying health care outcome research according to the quantity of empirical evidence supporting a particular intervention… Recovery is a deeply personal, unique process of changing one’s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills and/or roles. …a way of living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life and involves development of a new meaning and purpose in one’s life” (Anthony, W., et al., 2003).
Are the two concepts compatible or antithetical?
