It’s a great idea to keep an eye on how your recovery’s going. If progress is good, that’s a boost; if things need a little tweak, it’s good to know about it so you can get things back on track. Recovery involves change, and as you change so will your goals, so it’s useful to know if what you’re doing’s right for you.

Knowing where you are, where you want to be and what’s helping you get there empowers you and keeps you in control. The same applies to identifying the warning signs that your health’s deteriorating – in that sense, keeping track can save you a lot of trouble. Simple and effective tools are best.

The How are you going? and BeyondNow Safety Plan are simple tools that help you get on top of how you’re going.
