4D’s Recovery Vision:
4D envisions a future where systems, communities, and individuals work together to ensure all people receive the support needed to find and sustain recovery from substances.
4D’s Recovery Mission:
To provide a variety of recovery support services to young people between the ages of 18 and 35 in partnership with systems, communities, and individuals.
4D’s Five Values & Rights:
- Young adults have specialized needs, and age-specific recovery services that are sensitive to race, culture, and gender identity are required to meet those needs.
- Substance use disorder does not discriminate and neither should systems, communities, or individuals that support recovery. Recovery support should be on demand and available to everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, or the ability to pay for treatment
- Each person’s recovery journey is unique and they are the experts in their own life. All pathways to recovery are equally valid, including harm reduction and medication-assisted treatment.
- Peer services are as effective as clinical services. Working together can best increase the success of recovery.
- Stigma is a major barrier in helping people recover. Substance use disorder is a disease, not a moral failing.
