People new to sobriety may struggle with the day to day life stuff that is seemingly “easy” for those not in recovery from substance abuse. Because recovery entails changing a lot of old behaviors, it is important that an individual new to sobriety develops and maintains healthy relationships with people, places and things. Support, community and therapy are all critical components not only in helping people stay abstinent, but also to regain a sense of normalcy and mental wellness.
