The Abraham Low Self-Help Systems (ALSHS) is a non-profit, community-based, self-help organization that teaches its self-help method to people battling mental illness, anxiety and stress. Developed in 1937 by Abraham Low, MD, the Recovery Method, based on cognitive behavior techniques, has enabled thousands of individuals to overcome the obstacles of mental illness and resume productive and successful lives. Currently, weekly Recovery Inc. meetings are held in nearly 600 locations throughout the United States and via telephone conference call meetings. The Recovery Method can be used in conjunction with professional therapy, medication or by itself, allowing customized treatment for each individual.
