Welcome to Recovery International, Ireland
Recovery International is a self-help group, founded in Chicago Illinois in 1937, by the late Dr. Abraham A. Low. It offers The Recovery Method of Will Training for improved mental health and for control of nervous symptoms.
The Recovery Method is "simple but not easy."
The Recovery Method consists of
- Reading and studying Dr. Low's book Mental Health Through Will Training. Other Recovery Literature can be read or tapes of Dr. Low's talks may be listened to.
- Regular attendance at a Recovery Meeting/s
- Practicing Recovery principles in one's everyday life situations.
Those coming to Recovery for the first time are always advised to attend a number of meetings so that they get some level of familiarity with the method and terminology used before they make a decision on the suitability of the Recovery Method to their individual circumstances. Dr. Low always stressed that that there are NO hopeless cases.
Because Recovery International is a self-help after-care organisation, it does not offer medical or other professional advice. It in no way supplants the doctor or other professional.
Each member is, at all times advised and expected to follow the authority of his/her own doctor.
The practice of the Recovery Methods will show the member how to do this more effectively
