Recovery Resources

According to The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), recovery-oriented care and recovery support systems help people with mental and substance use disorders manage their conditions successfully.

Recovery is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. There are four major dimensions that support recovery:


Overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being.


Having a stable and safe place to live.


Conducting meaningful daily activities and having the independence, income, and resources to participate in society.


Having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.
