Jalie Tucker, PhD, MPH, University of Florida, Katie Witkiewitz, PhD, University of New Mexico, edited Dynamic pathways to recovery from alcohol use disorder: Meaning and methods, that was published this year by Cambridge University Press. Several UF CARE members have chapters in it. Planning of the book was before NIAAA’s recent focus on defining recovery and funding more recovery research not limited to treatment outcome evaluations, it does align with the recent focus on AUD recovery, which Drs. Tucker and Witkiewitz were involved in discussions to help craft NIAAA’s definitions—see https://www.niaaa.nih.gov/research/niaaa-recovery-from-alcohol-use-disorder/definitions.
