01 Oct Launching Recovery is Beautiful
As we prepared to launch this Recovery is Beautiful website and campaign, we spent a lot of time thinking about recovery. On this site, you’ll find that recovery is defined 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.” (SAMHSA)
I believe recovery is about much more than physical, emotional, and social wellbeing. Recovery is about hope. Hope for a better life. Hope for more understanding. And hope for a better future for everyone.
Recovery has impacted all of our lives, some very directly, some a little more indirectly. I am a family member of individuals in recovery. I can tell you that their recovery has made me a better person. Understanding their disease, witnessing their strength, and supporting their journey has made me a champion for recovery. I will stand with individuals, families, and communities working to achieve recovery and I will do my part to help others truly understand and support recovery.
With the Recovery is Beautiful campaign, we are asking you to join us as we spread the word about the positive impact of recovery. So let’s all stand together with individuals in recovery and individuals working towards recovery. Join us as we show the world our support for recovery because Recovery is Beautiful!
Stay tuned to this website to learn more about Recovery is Beautiful campaign activities. Also, keep an eye on this blog where you will regularly hear from us as we spread the word about recovery.
