Gloucester County launches Recovery Library for residents

The online library features more than 3,000 multimedia resources for residents to work on mental health, addiction recovery and general wellness.

The Gloucester County Division of Human and Disability Services is honoring Mental Health Awareness Month by launching the Recovery Library.

The Recovery Library is the online destination for people navigating their own recovery and people supporting others in their recovery journey.

“May being Mental Health Month is the perfect time to launch the Recovery Library for our residents,” said Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger. “The library has over 3,000 multimedia resources that can help you work on your mental health, addiction recovery or general wellness.”

These resources include first person accounts of recovery, worksheets, calendars and pre-designed group content. It’s accessible on any internet-ready computer or mobile device.

It can be used by recovery partners, teams and individuals to make informed treatment decisions, manage their disorders and make progress towards self-care and recovery.

“Whether you or someone you know is struggling with their recovery, the Recovery Library has the tools to help,” said Freeholder Jim Jefferson, liaison to the Division of Human and Disability. “Recovery is a difficult, life-long process for some. We want to help our residents reach their recovery goals and hope this service gets them one step closer to their best life.
