An excellent "how-to" about changing the current medical/pathology oriented paradigm of health care and addictions services in Canada to a client-centered one. This was actually accomplished by the author in Nova Scotia where wait-times in that health authority were the lowest in the province. Interesting enough for the layperson, a must read for those (and their loved ones) already in the system as well as managers and team leaders.
