NARR Standard 3.0: 3.G.21. Engage residents in recovery planning and development of recovery capital
Two concepts—pathway and agency—are helpful when describing the motivation for this standard. Snyder et al (1991) first discussed these dual concepts together as “global hope.”35 Global hope occurs when an individual has a goal, conceives of a pathway (such as a Recovery Plan) to that goal, and believes that they have the agency to execute the pathway toward the goal. Research suggests that an increase in one’s global hope is predictive of drug abstinence.22 The concept of self-regulation can also help illustrate the important relationship between pathway and agency and how it relates to this standard. Both pathway and agency are strongly associated with self-regulation,36 which is an individual’s ability to realize a personal health issue and understand the factors involved in that issue. As a person better understands the issue, he or she must decide upon an action plan (pathway) for resolving the issue and execute the plan (agency).37 Further, agency is strongly associated with self-esteem,36 an important element in personal recovery capital. As they develop their recovery plans and foster agency to execute them, residents are developing their recovery capital. This standard is seated in the social model (recovery orientation; governance) as residents take charge of their own decision making and reflects SAMHSA’s dimension, Health. — NARR Standard 3.0 Compendium
