Pathways to Recovery® is a program that you will use as a tool to help you on your recovery journey. Pathways to Recovery® is a 12 week program that requires 2 hours per week of class time. You will also work on the material on your own time but there is no set schedule. It will help you discover what recovery looks like and decide the path you want to take to achieve it. It is an extensive workbook, about 400 pgs but you will use this book throughout your journey to recovery not just in the 12 weeks. It will orient you to move forward in your mental health recovery, help you identify your personal strengths and dreams, help you focus and re-establish your sources of identity and reclaim your lifestyle beyond a person with a psychiatric disability. It will help you think about who you are and the path you want to take to achieve your goals.
