What we're about
Recovery International was the first Self-Help system aimed at those suffering from mental and nervous disorders and symptoms. Dr. Abraham Low started it over 70 years ago. He developed the RI Method working with his patients over a 15 year period. Called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy today, it offers a ground-breaking method to help its members regain and maintain their mental health.
The RI Method has worked and continues to work for many thousands of people. It consist of easy-to-learn techniques and tools for changing the way we react to people and situations we have no control over. Additionally, members learn how to identify and manage negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that can lead to emotional distress and related physical symptoms.
People who stick to the RI Method are able to live healthy, productive lives with lower levels of tension, anger, fear, anxiety, compulsions, stress, and other symptoms.
