SAMHSA Stakeholder Feedback

Tell us your views on the working definition of recovery from mental and substance use disorders. What do you like about the definition, and what changes do you suggest?

Recovery is about having choice and focusing on healing

Recovery is about healing and moving forward with life that includes choices in treatment that can include various cultural healing modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, ayuverda, energy healing, shamanism, spiritism, and any thing that is meaningful to the person and enables the person to release traumatic energy from the body and getting back into balance as part of mind, body, and spirit process.

Recovery is about having access to hope and opportunity for education, living in the community, and able to work or to be self-employed.
