It has become clear to me that societal and governmental support of addiction recovery is not going to change. Therefore, our approach to recovery must change to work within this limited support. I have developed a model of recovery that utilizes the limited governmental resources at the start of the process and evolves into a self-sufficient and empowering support system. This program is broken into three separate stages, two of which are supported directly by the program. The program lasts up to a year and provides the individual with everything they will require to lead a happy and fulfilling life. I call this program Residents in Recovery.
