Life 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. This process values hope, empowerment, self-direction and healing. A recovery-focus signals a shift in expectations for those seeking help and for those assisting them. A life recovery approach to change addresses mental health and substance use conditions among communities, providers, families and other stake holders to infuse a recovery focus into behavioral health........ Recovery support services help people enter into and navigate systems of care, remove barriers to recovery, stay engaged in the recovery process, and live full lives in communities of their choice.
