Hope - people can recover from even the most severe addictions if they are given the right support.
Accessible treatment – access to appropriate supports and treatment for alcohol and drug misuse, dependence or addiction should be affordable and within the reach of people who seek it when they need it.
Individuality – people respond best to support when their addiction treatment and recovery planis achievable, flexible and tailored specifically for them.
Families – families of people experiencing addictions need support and understanding. People are more likely to recover from addiction when their family is well-informed, supportive and supportable.
Community – connection and a sense of belonging are essential to a life worth living.
