Alcohol and other drug (AOD) misuse and related disorders confer a prodigious burden of disease, disability and premature mortality in middle and high-income countries globally. Understanding how individuals are successful at changing and sustaining salutary change with regard to AOD-related behaviors has become a clinical and public health priority in light of increases in alcohol and opioid harms and a rapidly changing policy landscape regarding the legal status of marijuana. This talk examines these global challenges with presentation of results from the first nationally representative study of US adults who have successfully resolved a significant AOD problem highlighting national recovery prevalence estimates, the variety of recovery pathways used, recovery identity, number of prior recovery attempts needed to resolve an AOD problem, and changes in indices of quality of life and functioning with time in recovery.
