Recovery from substance misuse and/or a mental health disorder is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.

There are four major dimensions that support a life in recovery:

  • Health—Overcoming or managing one’s symptoms and making healthy choices that support physical and emotional wellbeing 
  • Home—A stable and safe place to live 
  • Purpose—Meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school, volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and the independence, income and resources to participate in society 
  • Community—Relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope
