It’s hard to give an exact definition to the word “recovery” in an addiction context. But through my experience I’ve learned this:
“Recovery is the way you react, in those private little moments, when no one is looking.”
However, when someone is on day 1, that quote doesn’t mean much. So I interviewed Dr. Dean Robb and he specializes in helping people discover “who they really are” once they are stable enough in recovery. We discuss, the purpose of recovery as well as try to define it.
