Recovery Community and the Recovery Movement The recovery community is a voluntary association of those impacted by AOD problems who come together for mutual support and joint action on AOD-related issues. A recovery community exists only to the extent that multiple and diverse recovery communities reach beyond their own geographical and cultural boundaries to embrace a single identity. The recovery movement is an organized effort to: 1)remove barriers to recovery for those still suffering from AOD problems, and 2) to improve the quality of life of those recovering from AOD problems.
Recovery Community and the Recovery Movement Paradigm shift from traditional treatment models Gives the message that recovery is possible Builds on individual and community strengths Provides support to those in recovery through shared experience Remove barriers to recovery for those suffering from addiction Assists the individual in recovery to re-engage based on resilience, health, and hopewith ones family, friends, and community.
Recovery Community and the Recovery Movement Persons in recovery and their family members are explicitly recognized as pivotal members of the workforce, as they have critical roles in caring for themselves and each other, whether informally through self-help and family care- giving or more formally through organized peer- and family-support services. These individuals are the unsung heroes and heroines of the workforce and provide a unique perspective that enhances the overall relevance and value of the care provided.
Recovery Support Services Recovery support services are services aimed at removing barriers and opening natural pathways to addiction recovery. Services may include: Transitional housing Transportation support Alcohol and drug free socialization Recovery Coaching Employment/Career Training Support Groups Health and Wellness Classes Parenting Support Life skills
The recovery community is one in which service is highly valued one in which the stability of ones own sobriety is measured not by what one possesses but by what one gives away. William L. White, 2000
You give back, you dont give up. You can always choose to help others. If you do, it will change you. Betty Ford Former 1 st lady
