SAMHSA’s working definition of recovery defines recovery as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.
Recovery is a process that has ups and downs. It doesn’t happen overnight. Don’t let that scare you. There are a wealth of tools available to help you or a loved one in recovery. You can do this! Find what works for you and use these tools to be your best self!
