Support for that recovery is available in various settings and groups. The goal of support is to keep individuals engaged in their recovery process through a shared understanding and experience with others in similar situations.
The four dimensions of recovery
SAMHSA identifies four major dimensions of recovery:
Overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms, and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being
Conducting meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and the independence, income, and resources to participate in society
Having a stable and safe place to live
Having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope
