Emotional sobriety or emotional recovery is an important phase in addiction recovery. Reaching this stage pushes recovery from simply abstaining from an addictive behavior to creating a lifestyle that reaches deeper emotional balance.  It helps us reach a place in our lives where we truly feel emotionally whole.
