People tend to have many misconceptions about recovery from addiction. These misunderstandings can be harmful for those people who are struggling with alcohol or drug use.

There are many different misconceptions about recovery. Most of these originate from half-truths or from those individuals who had a bad experience when they try to become sober.

What Myths did you hold to be true when you first came into the fellowship?
What is your understanding now?
How did your understanding change?

ADDICTS HAVE TO HIT ROCK BOTTOM
RECOVERY IS BORING.
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO RECOVER
RECOVERY WILL WIPE ALL OF MY ISSUES AWAY
Hopeless Cases Will Never Recover from Addiction
Alcoholism as a character flaw and lack of will
Alcoholics don’t look like me.
We have calls.

As a way to prepare for this episode, I asked our listeners about their experience with Recovery and Therapy. As always, our listeners responded. I asked our listeners if they have every been to therapy.


What percentage of our audience do you think has been in therapy for mental health?


https://www.surveymonkey.com/analyze/cvO8Ka49zIBw2Dobb6_2FKeQh_2FS5SGuvHftDOtL_2Ba8_2B1aJWleo3SQOVb0ADsYCfK0U


Many of us in recovery have found it helpful to receive mental health treatments such as talk therapy in addition to participation in a 12-step recovery program. Many of us have family of origin difficulties, the stress of dealing with the damages we have caused, many of us have been the victims of violence and abuse. Members have found that specialists in the mental health field can help in the healing process that sobriety offers.


But, sometimes, stigma within the recovering community can prevent us from seeking treatment. As we discussed last week, mental health disorders can kill and we at the Recovered Podcast advocate seeking professional help in addition to full and active participation in a 12-step recovering community.
