Positive addiction recovery uses the latest developments in positive psychology, along with established recovery principles, to offer a new and positive way to embrace life in recovery. Our aim is to show that you don’t have to settle for ok, in recovery, you can thrive.

Champion your recovery

Play to your strengths

Your character strengths are the positive aspects of your personality that help you feel authentic and engaged. Research has shown that playing to your strengths helps you achieve goals, reduce stress, deal with problems, increase happiness and find meaning.

Used skilled thinking

Understanding why you thought and acted the way you did in active addiction helps to identify a return to negative behaviour and thought patterns. Self awareness is essential to happy sober living.

Be a life long learner

Why stop there? Research shows that following a path of continual growth not only gives meaning and purpose in life, it makes you more successful, increases happiness and improves wellbeing.

Our philosophy

There’s always room to grow

We believe there is always a way to improve, or a new idea to try. This positive approach motivates us to be the best we can be, after all it is our recovery too!

Challenge what is expected

Everyone in recovery has the capacity to be happy and live a worthwhile life. Not settling for less should be the expectation not the exception.
