Recovery-oriented care, case management and support systems help people with substance use disorders reestablish over all well-being. 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:
Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional health.
Home—having a stable and safe place to live.
Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities and having the independence, income, and resources to participate in society.
Community—having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.
