Whether you are a person determined to take meaningful steps toward living your best life, or a practitioner supporting the process, we are confident you will find E-IMR's skills and strategies worthwhile and helpful. All of the activities in this workbook are designed to help people recover from mental ill health, substance use, and co-occurring disorders. And, the E-IMR activities included here are tried and true--meaning, they are supported by scientific evidence. In addition to being evidence-based, many individuals and practitioners have said that they enjoy working through the E-IMR workbook, and that it made a significant difference in helping them make positive changes in their lives. Some of their stories are shared in this workbook. We hope you find them to be a source of hope and inspiration.

For many, this workbook is the first opportunity and resource to explore and address mental health and substance use at the same time and in a truly integrated way. In fact, that is why we created E-IMR. From our work in the community, and from our own personal experiences, we realized there was a gap in services and resources for people experiencing co-occurring mental ill health and substance use. E-IMR grew out of our determination to fill that gap and it is based on our unwavering belief that with the right tools, resources, and support, recovery is possible for everyone. From the very first module, you will see that those recovering are in the driver's seat, and their process and path is as unique as the individual.
