Recovery has been defined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as “A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.” SAMHSA has also identified four major dimensions that support a life in recovery: Health, Home, Purpose, and Community. Receiving medication assisted treatment is one part of a person’s recovery process. It is important for people to learn about all aspects of recovery from taking medication to the inclusion of health, home, purpose, and community. This session will help organizations understand the recovery process for individuals receiving medication assisted treatment and how they can assist individuals in their recovery process.
