What is Recovery?
Recovery is the process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. (Embrace Recovery SC)
Words matter when it comes to the language of recovery, additional support can be given by eliminating words and phrases that can have a negative bias against individuals. Avoid words like addict, habit, junkie and clean. They suggest a person “is” the problem, rather than the person “having” a disease. Being characterized like that can reduce the willingness to seek treatment and we should all work toward ending the stigma associated with substance use disorders.
