What is Recovery?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), recovery is “a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.”

The process is guided by The 10 Principles of Recovery. Find more on recovery from mental health and substance use challenges. Learn more about Recovery Month and find additional resources.
