Multiple Paths of Recovery
Copper Sage recognizes multiple methods leading to successful recovery. Therefore, each client will experience a balance of new and old recovery approaches including Smart Recovery, Refuge Recovery, and 12-Step. So far there has yet to be one approach to addiction recovery that will work for everyone. People follow different paths into a sober life and what works for one person might not work for somebody else. A one size fits all approach, is generally when there is a push towards everyone following the same approach to recovery.That approach has widely been proven as ineffective. Some people may only have one attempt at recovery and if pushed towards a path of recovery that does not suit them it may be a wasted opportunity. If someone is guided into a recovery path that is uncomfortable for them, they may decide that recovery is not for them. The wrong recovery path can even be damaging to an individual. This is particularly true if a person has a dual-diagnosis. If people are directed towards inappropriate options it could be a waste of resources.
