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 the whole person and:

• 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
