While each definition and recommendation you find when googling recovery has likely worked for some, let this be a reminder that there is not just one correct definition and there is not just one correct approach.

With that being said, the definition we believe to be most helpful is the working definition published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which reads: “Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”

At APC, our shared beliefs and unique perspectives have created our approach to recovery. Our approach is holistic and individualized. We will walk with you throughout the entire process and always remind you that:

Recovery emerges from hope.

Recovery is person-driven.

Recovery occurs via many pathways.

Recovery is holistic.

Recovery is supported by peers and allies.

Recovery is supported through relationships and social networks.

Recovery is culturally based and influenced.

Recovery is supported by addressing trauma.

Recovery involves individual, family, and community strengths and responsibility.

Recovery is based on respect.

You are not alone. We are here to help.🖤
