What is meant by the term “stakeholder?”
Stakeholder is a term that was developed for business to refer to someone who has an interest or concern in its success. We thought this term was appropriate for recovery as well. Stakeholders include family, friends, employers and the community. Recovery must go deep and wide to provide the sort of resilience that the programs at InformYES encourage and promise. This will require that the stakeholders embrace their own recovery…in ways that begin to reveal themselves as the immediate crisis of the active problem retreats.
