Welcome to the Recovery Canada website!
Recovery Canada is licensed to practice the Recovery Method by Recovery International and is recognized by the Canadian Government. We are non-profit, non-sectarian and completely member managed.
Recovery International is a self-help mental health program based on the ground breaking work of our founder, the late Abraham A. Low, M.D., a neuropsychiatrist.
Recovery International, formerly "Recovery, Inc.", has been active since 1937 and has groups meeting every week around the world.
The Recovery Method is a compilation of many simple, yet practical coping techniques. To gain inner peace, members learn how to change the way they react to the people and situations they have no control over.
Members learn how to identify and manage negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that can lead to emotional distress and stress related physical symptoms.
The techniques are mastered through regular attendance at meetings, studying the Recovery literature, and daily practice.
We recommend taking the following steps:
- Read about the Recovery Method
- Learn to use some of the self-help Tools
- Read the Books written by Dr. Abraham Low, MD.
- Practice completing some Examples
- Attend community, telephone, or online Meetings
