Recovery to Practice is a
SAMHSA-Funded Project to bring recovery principles into behavioral healthcare.
“Recovery-oriented practices are based on an appreciation of each person’s right to determine, to author, his or her own life [and of] the central role that choice plays in defining who and what we are … Implementing high-quality and effective psychiatric rehabilitation and other evidence-based practices is not enough to accomplish transformation if the status and role of people in recovery is not also dramatically transformed from that of a passive ‘mental patient’ to that of an empowered citizen.” — Recovery to Practice Project Director Larry Davidson. Ph.D.
