Recovery Housing Supports All Four SAMHSA Dimensions of Recovery
Dimensions of Recovery
1. Health: overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms—for example, abstaining from use of alcohol, illicit drugs, and non-prescribed medications … making informed, healthy choices.
2. Home: a stable place to live.
3. Purpose: meaningful daily activities, such as a job, school, volunteerism, family caretaking, or creative endeavors, and the independence, income and resources to participate in society.
4. Community: relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.
