"Recovery capital has a contagious quality. It is time we all became its carriers". William White
Most people with substance use problems can and do recover. According to the 2021 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 7 in 10 (72.2 percent or 20.9 million) adults who ever had a substance use problem considered themselves to be recovering or in recovery (HHS, 2023). A peer-reviewed study co-authored by Dr. John Kelly in 2017 reported that almost 22.3 million Americans, more than 9% of adults, use traditional and non-traditional means to live in recovery after some form of substance-use disorder. The authors suggest increasing the resources, community-based options, and opportunities available to support long-term recovery (Kelly et al., 2017).
