Federal Government’s New Definition of “Recovery”

The full definition can be found by clicking HERE. It deals with recovery from mental illness as well as substance abuse and is general in character, but the emphasis throughout is on “self-determination and self-direction” which it says are “the foundations for recovery as individuals define their own life goals and design their unique path(s) towards those goals.”

One section is about “peers and allies” and says “mutual support and mutual aid groups, including the sharing of experiential knowledge and skills, as well as social learning, play an invaluable role in recovery.”

The whole thing is worth a read. See it HERE
