Stages of Recovery

According to the Recovery Research Institute, there are five stages of recovery and change. There are different strategies, treatment, and recovery support services at each stage. Below are the five stages of recovery and change, according to the Recovery Research Institute. 

  • Pre-contemplative 

“In this stage, individuals are not even thinking about changing their behavior. They do not see their addiction as a problem: they often think others who point out the problem are exaggerating.”

  • Contemplative

“In this stage, people are more aware of the personal consequences of their addiction and spend time thinking about their problem. Although they are able to consider the possibility of changing, they tend to be ambivalent about it.”

  • Preparation

“In this stage, people have made a commitment to make a change. This stage involves information gathering about what they will need to change their behavior.”

  • Action

“In this stage, individuals believe they have the ability to change their behavior and actively take steps to change their behavior.”

  • Maintenance

“In this stage, individuals maintain their sobriety, successfully avoiding temptations and relapse.”
