The First Year of Recovery CD
There is no need to be pessimistic about the chances for recovery from addiction. Certain groups of people in recovery have higher than 80% chance of getting through their first year of sobriety successfully. This lecture talks about these special groups of recovering addicts and details how all patients can have similar success rates. The concept of Post Acute Withdrawal is introduced, and the challenges of depression, anxiety and insomnia in early recovery are presented.
