SUBSTANCE USE 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. People with substance use disorders can, manage these conditions and create and sustain a wellness lifestyle. Addiction to drugs alcohol or other harmful chemicals can impact quality of life however at CSPNJ we know firsthand that addiction is treatable, prevented and /or successfully managed. We all have a role educating ourselves and community about how to prevent addiction and /or help others pursue a life in recovery At Collaborative Support programs of New Jersey we know that many people experience all forms of SUDs though can and do pursue a recovery lifestyle when they have access to a supportive community and engagement in meaningful activities in the community.

Our Wellness Centers, Respites and Supportive Services program all support recovery.

Definitions of Substance Use Recovery vary.1 NIDA2 uses this definition:

  • 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.
  • Being in recovery is when those positive changes and values become part of a voluntarily adopted lifestyle.

A life in recovery includes 4 dimensions:

  • Health: Overcoming or managing one’s behavioral health condition
  • Home: A stable and safe place to live
  • Purpose: Meaningful activities; independence, income, resources to participate in society
  • Community: Relationships, social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope

The process of recovery is not a universal experience or a single journey. There are as many pathways as there are people.

Pathways include access to evidence-based treatment, peer led recovery supports and social support from friends and family.

All people, and especially people in distressed communities need opportunities to share their experience and connect to meaningful and relevant supports and resources that will provide the foundation they need for their recovery journey.4

Words Matter !!! Often unintentionally, many people still talk about people in ways that are stigmatizing—meaning they use words that can portray someone with a SUD in a shameful or negative way and may prevent them from seeking treatment.

Financial figures (e.g. tax refund, revenue from fundraising, revenue from sale of goods and services or revenue from investment) are indicators to assess the financial sustainability of a charity, especially to charity evaluators. This information can impact a charity’s reputation with donors and societies, and thus the charity’s financial gains.
