Your Recovery

What does it mean to ‘take charge’ of my recovery?

You face your problems, know what is important to you, make decisions, and take action. You learn what works for you—and what doesn’t work.

You speak out about your needs, values, and choices. When you speak out, others learn what is important to you.

You make decisions. When you are involved in making decisions, your treatment and services are more likely to:

  • Match your needs and preferences
  • Respect your culture and beliefs
  • Be more helpful to you
  • Be something you can stick with
