Health Tip: Recovering From Substance Abuse
Key components of getting better

(HealthDay News) -- Recovery-oriented care aims to empower people with mental or substance-use disorders to manage their conditions.

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration defines recovery as a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives and strive to reach their full potential.

The process includes four major components:

  • Health -- Overcoming or managing one's diseases or symptoms. An example would be abstaining from use of alcohol or illicit drugs.
  • Home -- Having a constant and safe place to live.
  • Purpose -- Finding meaningful things to do each day, such as a job, volunteer work or family caregiving.
  • Community -- Establishing relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, stability, love and trust.
