Recovery Friendly Dundee
Sign the Recovery Friendly Dundee Pledge!
Recovery Friendly Dundee believes that people should be treated with respect and dignity and that Dundee should be a city where everyone feels valued, respected and supported rather than defined by their health condition or life circumstances. Dundee should be a safe and supportive city and the efforts of people in recovery should be recognised and encouraged.
If you believe this too, join us in our mission by signing up to the Recovery Friendly Dundee pledge. All groups, organisations and businesses are eligible to apply.
Recovery Friendly Dundee aims to support everyone in their local community by raising awareness of the wider issues and stigma faced by people in recovery.
We do this by bringing people together to share experiences, ideas and come up with community-led solutions.
Substance use is the main focus of Recovery Friendly Dundee because of the significant associated stigma but it is important to recognise the strong links with mental health, inequality and other factors affecting an individual’s health.
What is Recovery?
Recovery means different things to different people and there’s no right or wrong meaning. Recovery is driven by the individual and is a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. While the individual is at the heart of recovery, their relationship with the wider world - family, peers, communities and society - is an essential part of the recovery process.
Recovery is not a simple process and you can make it easier by helping to remove stigma as a barrier.
