A considerable amount of literature highlights the importance of membership in recovery-oriented groups (e.g. Best, Bamber, Battersby, Gilman, Groshkova, Honeor & White, 2010; Zywiak, Neighbors, Martin, Johnson, Eaton & Rosenhow, 2009), while identifying the lack of research and understanding of group processes and mechanisms of change in treatment. This chapter aims to capture the mechanisms and processes of recovery and desistance and the experiences, contextual and personal factors that take place during an inprison drug treatment group. We analyse narratives of men with histories of substance use attending an in-prison treatment programme while serving a life sentence and focus on elements that contribute to personal constructions of change and factors that facilitate or hinder recovery within the context of imprisonment.
