Put simply, recovery is about having and building a meaningful, satisfying and contributing life and using your strengths to become all you want to be.
A person’s journey of recovery is a highly individual process. It is about developing a meaningful and satisfying life regardless of a condition or diagnosis. Recovery is identifying, using and developing your skills and talents to become all you want to be and do all you want to do!
