This is the first book that uses the latest research evidence to build guidance on community-based rehabilitation with the aim of challenging stigma and marginalisation.

The case studies discussed, and a strengths-based approach emphasises the importance of long-term recovery and the role that communities and peers play in the process.

Best examines effective methods for community growth, offers sustainable ways of promoting social inclusion and puts forward a new drug strategy and a new reform policy for prisons.
