What is Recovery?

re·cov·er·y

noun

  1. a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength.

Returning to this normal state of health, mind, and strength is not something that comes easily! There are many elements that go into recovering from addiction, and we believe it can be broken down into three main components:

Sobriety

Abstinence from all mind-altering substances and addictive behaviors (or the desire to be abstinent).

Citizenship

Meaningful daily activities, connection to a community of people in recovery, and being of service to others.Nobody likes feeling alone, and loneliness is one of the main causes of addictive behaviors.

Personal Health

Making healthy choices that support our physical and emotional well-being. This may include activities such as meditation and exercise.

Mustangs for Recovery is a Cal Poly student organization that aims to provide a safe and supportive environment for students in recovery from addiction to substances and addictive behaviors. We also support students who have been directly or indirectly impacted by the substance abuse use of friends or loved ones.

The purpose Mustangs for Recovery exists is to carry the message of recovery to those who still suffer from addiction, and provide a safe place for students to discuss the ways addiction has impacted their lives.

Mustangs for Recovery is centered around 4 main elements:

  1. A community of supportive peers
  2. Recovery-oriented meetings and events
  3. Opportunities for leadership and service to the community
  4. A Recovery-friendly space
