What is the Recovery?
Recovery is a deeply personal, unique, and self determined journey
through which an individual strives to reach his/her full potential.
Persons in recovery improve their health and wellness by taking
responsibility in pursing a fulfilling and contributing life while
embracing the difficulties one has faced.
Recovery is not a gift from any system. Recovery is nurtured by
relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment,
choices and opportunities.
Recovery belongs to the person. It is a right, and it is the
responsibility of us all.
Georgia Recovery Initiative’s Progress
We have hosted “listening sessions” with over 300
participants across the state. For over a year, our diverse
group has met regularly and we are now members of a ROSC
Learning Community Cohort, sponsored by the Office of
National Drug Control Policy, Executive Office of the
President! We will share the feedback and input shared with
us to shape a Georgia Recovery-Oriented System of Care that
truly supports the local recovery successes in this state.
