Supporting recovery


In a survey carried out by CCSA (2017), participants said that the most important reasons for starting their recovery journey were:

    quality of life (69.1 per cent)
    mental or emotional health (68.0 per cent)
    marital, family or other relationships (64.9 per cent)
    physical health (45.5 per cent).

People take different paths while on their recovery journeys. In this study, many participants used a combination of professional treatment services, informal supports and mutual support groups.
