WHAT IS RECOVERY?
Recovery is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential. Even people with severe and chronic substance use disorders can, with help, overcome their illness and regain health and social function. Being in recovery is when those positive changes and values become part of a voluntarily adopted lifestyle.
"You are more than your circumstances. You are your possibilities."

Navigating People, Places, and Things in Early Recovery
The early days of recovery can be both exciting and challenging as you adjust to a new way of life. One of the biggest challenges many of us faced during this time was navigating the people, places, and things that might trigger cravings to use and lead to a possible setback in our recovery.
Our #1 sobriety tip to anyone new in recovery is to avoid spending time with people who may encourage you to drink or use drugs or socializing at risky places like bars, neighborhood parties (where the drinks are flowing) or casinos. Instead, surround yourself with supportive friends, peers, and family members who understand your commitment to sobriety, and remember you can always reach out to us for extra support at 530-501-5888.
Recovery is a journey and it's okay to ask for help when you need it. Stay strong, stay sober, and congratulations again on this important step in your life.
