Recovery is learning to enjoy life - without the use of alcohol or drugs that alter mind or mood.

It is treatment for the condition of addiction – an approach to the challenges of life – and a path to personal growth.

The Principles of Recovery counteract the sick tendencies of addiction – and provide direction – to the choices that we face each day.

The first three Principles of Recovery - Honesty, Opennes and Willingness - are often referred to as the HOW of recovery.

Talk honestly about where you are at right now. Listen to the experience of others. And be willing to try a new way today.

The healing Ways of Recovery are drawn from the experience of others – from spiritual traditions and current treatment strategies.

Talking with others, journal writing, meditation or prayer – helping a friend or learning to say ‘No’ – are all examples of the healing Ways of Recovery.

The Ways of Recovery provide tools - helping us to enjoy life on life's terms.

The SupportNet Recovery Learning Series offers educational seminars to help you understand these and other topics of recovery. Twenty-six topics - all free for you to read online - or just sit back and listen - to each topic by audio stream.
