How it's used
Partners - such as: health plans and managed care organizations; federal, state and county mental health authorities; multi-state, multi-service provider networks and health homes; and peer-run organizations - sponsor its use to support client involvement in treatment.
Teams - such as: a single provider site or program, a peer-run center, or an academic program - use it to train new employees, run billable groups, and to teach others how to identify their Personal Medicine so that the entire clinical care team understands the unique skills individuals bring to their own recovery; academia uses it to introduce the next generation of providers to recovery.
Individuals, their families and friends, and their support networks use it to increase knowledge about self and recovery, to learn to identify the things that can be done to be well, and to discover personal power in recovery.
