What is Recovery

For detailed information and resources for Trauma Recovery, go to the dedicated Trauma Recovery website located here.

Recovery is the primary goal for people who have experienced trauma, their families, and their care providers. Recovery does not necessarily mean complete freedom from post-traumatic affects. Recovery is an individual experience and will be and look different for everyone. In general recovery is the ability to live in the present without being overwhelmed by the thoughts and feelings of the past.

In a trauma informed system, it is acknowledged that everyone plays a role in supporting recovery, from the reception person to the CEO.
