Design for Recovery helps young men overcome the struggles of finding employment, despite the obstacles that many addicts face. Design for Recovery also recognizes that employment is a key protective factor against relapse and social exclusion, a sentiment supported by various drug and alcohol research organizations worldwide. According to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction: [Employment] can provide financial means, increase social networks, be associated with certain rights… Moreover, employment can help drug users to recover from their dependence and reduce the risk of relapse after getting sober; the positive value of employment is also recognized by many drug users themselves. The potential benefits of being in (paid) work can include a sense of responsibility and contribution to society; a sense of self-worth and confidence; a new source of identity; a new social network of non-drug users; and a daily routine that is not focused on the procurement of drugs.
