How to Stay Active in Recovery while social distancing by Primary Therapist Brianne Renley
In early recovery, I was repeatedly told by another person in recovery “no matter what, we don’t pick up.” With everything going on, it is important to remind myself that there is truly no situation that will be made better by following my addiction. We are all going through an interesting time right now. We all have a chance to grow from it. Recovery is about adapting. So that is what we are doing.
