Support Group Links

Participation in a support group is not considered treatment, but active participation is often the an important factor in successful recovery.

SAMHSA defines recovery as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a selfdirected life, and strive to reach their full potential.Through the Recovery Support Strategic Initiative,SAMHSA has delineated four major dimensions that support a life in recovery: 1 Health-Overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms—for example, abstaining from use of alcohol, illicit drugs, and non-prescribed medications if one has an addiction problem—and for everyone in recovery, making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional wellbeing. 2 Home-A stable and safe place to live. 3 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. 4 Community- Relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope - online support information for many conditions
