About Recovery is a one-stop resource to inform and help recovering addicts.

While recovery is a personal journey, know that you are not alone as you move forward. Our goal is to produce a resource to help continue the road of recovery and make that journey a little easier–giving you the resources you need to be encouraged, make the right decisions, and surround yourself with supportive environments.

Every trip requires steps to arrive at the destination. Whenever you travel or visit a new area, it is essential to have good directions to ensure that you get to where you want to go. Without clear directions, you are unlikely to arrive at the right destination.

Furthermore, even with great directions, you may face some unexpected delays and detours. When this happens, you may get lost. It is frustrating to get lost along the way, but know About Recovery gives you the information you need to get back on track.

Here’s what a professional therapist has to say about treatment and life in recovery:

Whether you are in recovery, or if you are a professional who is providing resources to help other people recover, this website will be a valuable resource for you.

We focus on three main areas: finding employment after recovery, knowing someone’s rights in regard to treatment and helping family members find help as well.

Thanks for visiting the site. If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of our counselors at our toll-free, 24 hour helpline. Our admissions coordinators will listen to your questions and be glad to assist you.
