Organizational Definition

Recovery Literacy > Definitions of “Recovery” > Organizational Definition

To empower consumer choice and attract appropriate applicants, a recovery service provider, such as a recovery home, recovery high school, or community center, should consider establishing its own organizational definition of “recovery.”

Newcomers assimilate into a culture of recovery, which is implicitly or explicitly shaped by the organization’s or program’s definition of “recovery.” Which recovery paths a program or provider is capable of supporting largely depends on its cultural philosophies and belief systems, including its definition of “recovery.”
