Partial Recovery is just what it sounds like. Typically, it's said that a person is sober, but not in recovery if they are only partially recovered. Just because someone with a substance use disorder discontinues use or follows treatment protocol does not mean that they are in recovery from their disorder. If both are not done in conjunction, a person cannot be considered to be fully recovered.

Harm Reduction is a form of partial recovery.
