When an addict decides to begin their recovery, it's a moment filled with apprehension - fear for the future, guilt, shame, insecurity. It's a moment defined by hope, but also it's a very tenuous time. I remember during my own recovery that I was very focused on what my family and friends thought about me. Thankfully, my sister in particular was nothing but supportive of my recovery. Now that I'm an addiction recovery counselor, I take ever opportunity I can to share the power of positive, loving support networks in recovery. To raise awareness of how people can be positive and supportive in this way, the treatment center I work at has produced this: http://bit.ly/1C58nfN and I thought this might be a good place to share it since it's all about love and acceptance!
