Recovery: Mental Health, Substance Use

Behavioral health is essential to overall health

Individuals living with mental health and substance use concerns can and do get better. This is true for tens of thousands of Wisconsin residents whose lives have been transformed through recovery. They’re managing their symptoms. They’re no longer addicted to alcohol and drugs. They've reconnected with family and friends. They have built strong, healthy relationships in their communities. They’re gainfully employed and contributing to Wisconsin’s economic well-being. 

Recovery is a journey

Recovery is an ongoing process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential. Recovery looks and feels different for everyone, but it is possible for everyone.
