The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines Recovery as “a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”
Dimensions that support a life in Recovery:
Health: Overcoming and managing a disease, abstaining from substances if the person has an addiction and making choices that support physical and emotional well-being.
Home: A safe, stable place to live.
Purpose: Taking part in meaningful activities such as a job, school, volunteer work while becoming independent and able to support self.
Community: Developing relationships that provide support, friendship, love and hope.
An integral part of Liberation Programs’ Prevention and Recovery Services are our Recovery Coaches, trained by the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy©.
A Recovery Coach promotes recovery and removes barriers and obstacles to recovery, serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery from an addiction to alcohol and or other drugs.
We employ Recovery Coaches who serve as a source of hope and support, including as a motivator, recovery resource broker, mentor and liaison to individuals, and families of individuals, struggling with opioid misuse or other substance misuse, including alcohol.
