Welcome to Our COMMUNITY PAGE

We are a dedicated group of peer support recovery advocates in long-term sobriety. We created this digital resource to ignite hope, break stereotypes, reduce stigma, and offer support and encouragement to others on the road to recovery.

The Vital Role of Community in Recovery

Recovery is not just an individual journey, but also a collective one that involves the entire community. In fact, a strong and supportive community is essential for a successful recovery. By  participating in community events, such as festivals, fairs, fundraisers, holiday and cultural celebrations, individuals in recovery can connect with others, and experience new things through a sober lens.

Civic activities such as volunteering, advocacy, and political engagement can also be powerful tools for strengthening  recovery. By getting involved in causes they care about, individuals can build a sense of purpose, develop new skills, and make a positive impact on their community. Volunteering, in particular, can be especially beneficial for recovery, as it provides an opportunity to connect with others, feel a sense of accomplishment, and build self-esteem.

Church and other faith-based communities can also play an important role in recovery. These communities can offer a sense of spiritual guidance, moral support, and fellowship that can be essential for individuals on their recovery journey.

 

By participating in one's community, recovering individuals can build a sense of belonging, reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness, and discover new interests and passions, and contribute to the greater good.

Ending The Stigma: Words Matter

At Colusa County Recovery, we are firmly committed to eradicating the stigma surrounding addiction. Together, we are dedicated to fostering a community where understanding prevails over judgment, and compassion replaces misconceptions. To achieve this goal, we have decided to permanently remove the term 'Substance Use Disorder' from our digital platform. The term 'disorder' has a historical association with moral failure and weakness, implying that individuals are inherently flawed or deviant. We advocate for the adoption of less stigmatizing terms, such as 'substance use condition' or 'substance use challenge.' We also encourage medical and mental health professionals to discontinue using the term 'Substance Use Disorder' in their practices.
