Recovery-oriented care and addiction recovery support systems help people with mental and substance use disorders manage their conditions successfully. Recovery is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.
Art Therapy Facilitator/AOD Support
I’m currently studying 2nd year Diploma Community Services and hold an Advanced Diploma of Therapeutic Arts Counselling. I am also on the committee for the Orwil Street Community House. I use my empathy and lived experience’s to mentor and facilitate Creative Therapeutic Art processes to express the deeper narrative of the psych using a holistic solution focussed approach. I also enjoy spending time with my cat MaXx.
Recovery-oriented care and recovery support
There are four major dimensions that support addiction recovery:
- Health—overcoming or managing one’s disease(s) or symptoms and making informed, healthy choices that support physical and emotional well-being.
- Home—having a stable and safe place to live.
- Purpose—conducting meaningful daily activities and having the independence, income, and resources to participate in society.
- Community—having relationships and social networks that provide support, friendship, love, and hope.
Hope, the belief that these challenges and conditions can be overcome, is the foundation of drug and alcohol recovery. The process of recovery is highly personal and occurs via many pathways. Addiction recovery is characterized by continual growth and improvement in one’s health and wellness that may involve setbacks. Because setbacks are a natural part of life, resilience becomes a key component of recovery.
At Seahaven, we establish skills, education and a sober community to best support recovery and relapse prevention. We provide accessible, evidence-based tools to help manage addictive behaviours, make healthy choices, and move toward resilience, peace, and success in life.
We believe that change and growth are possible in all individuals if they choose to recover. All programs are tailored to meet the needs of each client individually and aim to deal in a holistic way with the underlying issues driving addiction.
