Role Recovery & Resiliency
To encourage recovery, the agency adopts the following ten fundamental components of recovery developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA):
By definition, the recovery process must be self-directed. Individuals define his/her life goals and designs a unique path to meet those goals.
Individualized and Person Centered
Recovery is based on each individual’s unique strengths and resiliency as well as his/her needs, preferences, experiences, and cultural background in all of its diverse representations.
Individuals have the authority to choose from a range of options and to participate in all decisions that will affect their lives.
Recovery encompasses an individual’s entire life including mind, body, spirit, and community.
Recovery is not a step-by-step process, but one based on continual growth, occasional set backs, and learning from experience.
By building on their strengths, individuals move forward through interaction with others in supportive, trust-based relationships.
Individuals encourage and engage other individuals in recovery and promote each other with a sense of belonging, supportive relationships, valued roles, and community.
Self-acceptance and regaining belief in one’s self ensures the inclusion and full participation of individuals in all aspects of their lives.
Individuals have a personal responsibility to understand and give meaning to their experiences and identify the coping strategies and healing processes which will promote their own wellness.
Hope is a catalyst of the recovery process, providing the essential, motivating message of a better future.
