According to SAMHSA, 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.

People with severe and chronic substance use disorders can, with help, overcome their illness and regain health and social function. There are many pathways to recovery. It is crucial that people seeking recovery are given options in their decision making and are empowered to make the choices best suited to their health and safety with guidance from family and medical providers.

One of the biggest challenges people with addiction face is finding help.  We are not treatment providers and can’t recommend treatment options, but here are some links to help you or your loved one start the recovery journey.
