We can all take steps towards recovery.
Recovery is a very personal thing and will be different for everyone. It’s often helpful to think about it like a journey. There might be difficulties and times when we feel we’re going backwards – but if we look at our lives overall, things feel better than they were before.
There are lots of different things that might be part of our recovery.
For some of us these things will start to happen naturally. But it might be helpful to think about recovery in a structured, step-by-step way.
