Illnesses don't recover. People do.

Pat Deegan's Recovery Approach focuses on the person instead of the illness and offers hope-filled tools, technologies and training for professionals, families and individuals.  Using Pat's Approach, people can move beyond a diagnosis and get to the life they want, and staff gain the knowledge and skills for practicing true recovery-oriented care.
