Recovery is a deeply personal, unique, and self determined journey through which an individual strives to reach his/her full potential. Persons in recovery improve their health and wellness by taking responsibility in pursuing a fulfilling and contributing life while embracing the difficulties one has faced.

It is a right, and it is the responsibility of us all.
