Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, lead self directed lives, and strive to meet their full potential. (SAMHSA’s Working Definition of Recovery)
LEAF serves as an advisory group to the Rural Counties Initiative for Recovery. Central Plains Center is a collaborative agency member that successfully competed for funds to implement Recovery Support Services. The services are provided by peers to help people become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse. Because they are designed and delivered by peers who have been successful in the recovery process, they embody a powerful message of hope, as well as a wealth of experiential knowledge. The services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking to achieve or sustain recovery.
