        Everyone who receives services for mental health, substance abuse, trauma, homelessness, incarceration and other treatments to include whole body is responsible for their recovery. Through education, resources, networking, socialization, support, peer to peer in all aspects of "health" each person holds responsibity to ensure they are the center of decision making when it comes to treatment and services. With these tools and skills we will be able to prevent long term health problems and live to our fullest in recovery.
