About Movement of Recovery

What is MOR?

Movement of Recovery M.O.R. is a free information service, dedicated to any individual: family member or person seeking help with substance use related issues.  MOR promotes Recovery as an attractive and positive lifestyle choice, with an aim to show people that “Recovery is to be Enjoyed Not Endured”.

The M.O.R. media and social media platform is designed to provide a space for the celebration of recovery and promoting services to participate in the evolution and transformation of Recovery in its community related, social, legal and ideological aspects. Contribute to providing information, networking, education and breaking down the stigma and misinformation, clouding the perception of addiction therapy and recovery?  

MOR captures the spirit essence of living clean/sober and promoting recovery as a lifestyle choice, that’s exciting, inviting and appealing.

M.O.R. began in January 2018 with an addict in recovery venturing in a van through New Zealand, Australia, then with a fellow Indonesian addict, 20.000km through Bali, Java, and Sumatra over a 5 month period filming addicts in recovery building a tribe, promoting services, seeing a need for M.O.R.

The experience of traveling through Bali, Java and Sumatra, gave our team a larger awareness of the need for more education for families and communities, the lack of resources to do this, and the need for a means by which services and Indonesian recovery could have a voice and promote itself offering a way out of active addiction.     

Since arriving back in Bali in December 2018 our team began the process of MOR becoming a legal entity where we can start up and support projects furthering recovery in Indonesia. The MOR Project is now equipped  with three vans for outreach purposes enabling MOR to travel into communities, schools and anywhere that education, information or support is needed.

Social Media Network

All MOR social media links people directly to our website. The MOR website also translates into Bahasa Indonesian and English offering a directory of Drug & Alcohol treatment services throughout Indonesia and southeast Asia. 

Movement Of Recovery (MOR) and Pergerakan Pemulihan, is a growing entity with a large social media network and platform built specifically to help to help the addict, families and community to find help, but also for services to network and promote themselves. Pergerakan Pemulihan (MOR) is an independent peer support entity, with a clear set of values.

We aim to remain transparent to our audience and all involved. We will collaborate with services or projects furthering the benefit of Recovery, while remaining independent from any individual treatment services, or governmental organisations.

Through our ever growing social media presence MOR gives a real life insight into the spirit of Indonesian recovery also offering a platform for persons or organisations abroad, to support the growth of recovery services and those in need in Indonesia. 

Just over one year later, after filming free promotional videos for NGO’s and governmental treatment facilities through Java and Sumatra, having addicts share their truth with plenty of news media coverage, MOR is now has an active following of 20.000 people on Facebook and more on other social media platforms and we’re happy to say is now a fully legal entity. 

We have many projects are waiting to be launched in 2019 to further promote Recovery as a positive lifestyle choice. Amongst others, we aim to convert a year’s worth of road trip footage into educational videos, documentaries and inspirational films promoting recovery.

MOR captures the spirit essence of living clean/sober and promoting recovery as a lifestyle choice, that’s exciting, inviting and appealing through social media and outreach work .

Why is MOR needed?

After Pergerakan Pemulihan (M.O.R.) having traveled 20.000km from Bali, through Java, Sumatra and back over a 5 month period visiting addicts and treatment services, we observed the want for more resources, education and general information about substance abuse and recovery.

Because most of our social media posts are translated into bahasa Indonesia, we noted it was the first time many Indonesians saw a global voice of recovery, understanding substance abuse and addiction does not discriminate. Likewise it was often the first insight persons from abroad had an insight into recovery Indonesia.

Much of the western world misunderstands Indonesia’s stance on substance abuse and recovery. Pergerakan Pemulihan (MOR) has been able to bridge a gap in communication between Indonesian and global recovery.

Pergerakan Pemulihan is also a mobile outreach service able to travel to the furthest most reaches of Indonesian communities, schools, Banjar and those most in need of support, education and resources. Capturing the essence of the Indonesian spirit and want for recovery (of which MOR observed) through video, drone, GoPro footage and other means to which Pergerakan Pemulihan can capture. Pergerakan  Pemulihan aims to reach all persons through our social media network but also individuals or organisations abroad wanting to donate or fund various projects furthering the growth of recovery in Indonesia.

The MOR social media platform is also a means by which all Yayasan in line with our primary cause and projects furthering recovery can promote themselves and network with other services. Pergerakan Pemulihan gives a platform where educational seminars and information can be to reached easily by individuals, families, communities and services.

The current Government stance in Indonesia

Head of the National Narcotics Agency, Heru Winarko, gave a speech on the 25/03/2019 stating that drug abuse throughout Indonesia in 2018 targeted several layers of society.  One of them is students and workers. Also noting that for 2018, as many as 3.21 percent of drug users come from among students. People who work were registered to abuse drugs reached 1,514,037.

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia stated around 50 people die every day because of the abuse of narcotics and illegal drugs in Indonesia (BNN) Komjen Pol, 2015).

The National Narcotics Agency Reminds 50 People to Die Every Day due to Drugs

BNN data recorded that around 4.2 million Indonesians used drugs in mid-2014 and the agency targets to rehabilitate around 100 thousand drug users this year. However drug use has risen considerably since the time of this report.

According to Sumirat Dwiyanto (head of BNN) in 2015 drug deals in Southeast Asia as a whole was an estimated US$12 billion annually. This does not take into consideration the number of drug deals that successfully evaded the police.

Authorities say that drugs are an important issue in Indonesia. President Jokowi even mentioned that drug abuse sits at the top of the country’s problems. In recent years, he even declared a state of emergency on narcotics entering the country.

Anti-narcotics laws and their enforcement tend to be tough in Southeast Asia. However despite this drug use and the trafficking of drugs is not in decline.

Pergerakan Pemulihan  does not discriminate, and has no opinion on religious beliefs, sexual identity, creed or politics, our only question is...

I remember my mother's tears, my sister dying from an overdose, my family being torn apart from addiction. Prison cell walls and the walls I created in my own mind to protect myself from myself. Dealing drugs, manipulating and stealing. Lying to all those who I knew. Never having had a job and feeling unworthy of academic achievement. Selling drugs is all I knew.Fifteen years ago ( after many years of trying recovery ) I allowed a movement of people to love me when I couldn’t love myself. Fifteen years later as a social worker, and registered drug and alcohol practitioner and having built a dream by becoming the founder of Bali’s No 1 addiction treatment center: Sivana Bali holistic addiction treatment facility I found that dreams can come true when others believe in you. Those few that stand by you when others and yourself say "cant".

This year, I allow myself to let go and to take a journey to find brothers and sisters who inspire and strive to make a positive contribution to this world we live and make a positive change. Those who embrace life today and allow others to shine. Join The Journey, it's just a ride, we can make a difference together.

I am from a family that is less able to express our feelings and thoughts, so that we are not close to each other. And I also feel lonely as a child longs for the figure of a father and feels he has never received support from him. Until Drugs and Alcohol became friends who can meet my needs. Drop out and to move schools and driving accidents. But my mother was always present to me until finally she became ill and died. From there my guilt grew bigger and increased for drug use. Up to the saturation point. And also most of my peers died as a result of their differences. I prayed and begged to get the way of recovery and if I could not, I would die in my addiction.

My prayer was granted and I was moved to help others like me. For more than ten years, I have worked in the rehabilitation sector and become one of the founders of the foundation and rehabilitation in Bali and Solo. Doing the M.O.R road trip is one of the dreams to see some cultures in Indonesia and spread recovery messages along our path. And become part of the growth of the recovery community in Indonesia. We are all walking a similar path to ENJOY recovery freedom together. It’s about We.
