Recovery isn’t a linear process. Like many things in life, it’s far more complicated than simply getting from point A to point B. Regardless of our intentions, there will be bad days. Days when the struggle to stay clean, stay sober, feel so unattainable you ask yourself: “Why even try?”
The weight of these feelings is a burden all on its own. Carrying at weight around only adds frustration and fear to an already difficult process. Having an outlet to express these feelings – and to not just be heard but truly seen and understood – is a crucial part of the recovery process.
The team of recovery coaches at Turning Point Center of Chittenden County understand this need. They are in sustained, long-term recovery (minimum 3 years) themselves.
