Substance Use Recovery
Someone with a substance use disorder may repeatedly use alcohol or drugs despite the consequences. More than 20 million Americans struggle with substance use, including 8 million people who also have a mental health disorder, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
At Vaya, we see you as a person, not a diagnosis. Founded upon SAMHSA’s guiding principles of recovery, we believe that recovery focuses on
- Emerges from hope
- Is person-driven
- Occurs through many pathways
- Is holistic
- Is supported by peers and allies
- Is supported through relationships and social networks
- Is culturally based and influenced
- Is supported by addressing trauma
- Involves individual, family, and community strengths and responsibility
- Is based on respect
