THROUGH THE RECOVERY SUPPORT STRATEGIC INITIATIVE, SAMHSA HAS OUTLINED FOUR MAJOR DIMENSIONS THAT SUPPORT A LIFE IN RECOVERY.

These points and more are tools we use in our weekly Peer support group that meets every Thursday at the Gay Street United Methodist Church, North Gay and Chestnut Streets, Mount Vernon, Ohio. All are welcome to join in ... free, confidential.

  • Recovery is supported through relationship and social networks
  • Recovery is culturally-based and influenced
  • Recovery is supported by addressing trauma
