Intentional Recovery Community

At Barnett House Recovery Centre, we have an intentional recovery community, where we share our insights and learnings around recovery and shared mutual support.

The intentional recovery community operates like an exchange in that we share our own wellbeing tools that we have found helpful, such as concepts (e.g. silencing the inner critic), processes (e.g. cooking easy healthy meals), and things (e.g. developing a support box for difficult times or making weighted blankets/animals), and we learn from others about their wellbeing tools.

We also ‘socially prescribe’ wellbeing projects for ourselves to get involved in, such as gardening, co-reflection, food sustainability, animal care and trauma recovery work, as well as having fun and running the recovery college together.
