Recovery Resource Supports
• The objective of categorizing support resources is to
help individuals in recovery identify key supports
needed to maintain sobriety.
• By organizing recovery resources into four main
categories, matching individuals with resources will be
more efficient.
• Mapping recovery resources across the county helps
individuals identify resources that are more accessible.
• Analyzing the mapped resources creates the
opportunity to advocate for new resources in
underserved areas.
Recovery
• Recovery from Mental Disorders and/or
Substance Use Disorders: A process of change
through which individuals improve their
health and wellness, live a self-directed life,
and strive to reach their full potential.
(del Vecchio, 2012)
