What is recovery?

Who better can explain what recovery actually means (and how they got there) than someone who is actually in recovery?

This infographic represents over 9,300 case studies, making visual the data collected  by a recent study funded by the National Institutes of Health about types of recovery, definitions, as well as the how people get into recovery.

Inside, you can explore demographic information about recovery as it relates to gender, age, ethnicity, and employment. You can also discover:

  • How do people in recovery feel about their quality of life?
  • For how long have most people been in recovery?
  • What are the paths to addiction recovery?
  • What types of recovery are possible?

Your comments and questions about addiction recovery are welcomed at the end.

This is a cool infographic. With all the talk in the news lately about the tragic state of affairs with drug abuse in our country, it’s nice to have a succinct portrait of the folks who consider themselves in recovery or recovered.

Addiction recovery IS an exciting and growing phenomenon. Have you seen “The Anonymous People”? There are over 20 million Americans living in long term recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. I do think that there might be a little bias in the study, since it was performed online. But overall, I’m happy to learn more about my fellow people in recovery.
