Exploring Your Recovery
Take 2-minutes to learn about Exploring Your Recovery.
The Common Struggle
Approximately half of people with substance use disorder also experience co-occurring mental health disorders. These struggles are rarely addressed in recovery meetings.
Exploring Your Recovery is a new topic-based group discussion curriculum that goes beyond the 12-steps to help those affected by addiction explore their experiences with a variety of mental health struggles that commonly co-occur with addiction.

Understanding What Defines Us
Many people in addiction and/or recovery define themselves in terms of the things they struggle with. They may see these thought patterns as who they are rather than a temporary condition to be explored.
Exploring Your Recovery helps people see that their identity is defined by God rather than their own thoughts or behavior. Short curriculum videos introduce each topic through personal stories presented by real people who share their own struggles to help participants see the ways that mental health struggles are fed by addiction, as well as the way these conditions can threaten recovery.
