“Recovery is a deeply personal, unique, and self-determined journey through which an individual strives to reach his or her full potential. Persons in recovery improve their health and wellness by taking responsibility in pursuing a fulfilling and contributing life while embracing the difficulties one has faced. Recovery is not a gift from any system. Recovery is nurtured by relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment, choices and responsibilities.
Recovery belongs to the person. It is a right, and it is the responsibility of us all.”
- Georgia Recovery Initiative, 2013
