About the 10 Principles of Recovery

The 10 Principles of Recovery program is built on evidence-based positive psychology principles and a strengths-based approach to addiction and recovery. The principles in the workbook promote self-efficacy and change through focusing on strengths, the good in life instead of the bad, and solutions instead of problems. Not only do the principles support recovery, but they also enhance well-being and coping skills for everyone.


The ultimate goal of the 10 Principles program is to promote living a flourishing life that is meaningful and in which you function well (psychologically and socially) and feel good (experience positive emotions). This goes beyond traditional ideas of happiness and well-being. A flourishing life is not without hardship or pain but incorporates the perspective that the good outweighs the bad.


These principles promote change by helping the person overcome negative labeling patterns, develop a positive perspective of themselves, and learn coping skills that promote growth. But most importantly, this program supports moving forward with authenticity and honesty and emphasizes the point that individuals do have the power to change their lives.
