ABSTRACT: Recovery in mental illness is a person-oriented process that involves self-determination/choice, and growth potential. This article discusses eight components of recovery-oriented treatment, and how nurses in any setting can facilitate recovery and encourage the healthy role of spirituality in clients' lives during the recovery process. Biblical references relating to each component of the recovery-oriented process are offered.
