Recovery capital is a relatively new concept in the field of recovery.
Let’s define this concept.
Our recovery capital is determined by the number of external and internal assets that we have which support recovery. External assets are things like having a home group that we attend regularly, or a good connection with our sponsor, or the support of our family, etc. Legal problems can also be an external asset because they provide a certain level of motivation to change. nternal assets are our level of commitment to recovery, the degree to which we have accepted our devastating weakness, our attitude towards our problem and our attitude towards oursel and others.
