Abstract

Research highlights that recovery from substance use is a process facilitated by relational factors, resources and therapeutic practices embedded in places conducive to recovery. However, the accessibility of such resources for those with complex needs, and the therapeutic potential of peer-led spaces needs contextualizing in both time and place. We examined the characteristics of a social space employing a noninterventionist peer-led approach for active alcohol users. Individuals prioritized the management of everyday life over recovery, especially abstinence. This space acted as a replacement “jigsaw”; interrupting the temporal, spatial and social aspects of active use. Flexible approaches allowing choice in recovery pathways appear significant for this population.
