An individual has achieved sobriety. Now what? Abstinence and the ability to have a happy life are not the same thing. Attaining sobriety is only the first stage of recovery. Abstinence is often mistaken for recovery. This workshop will focus on and explore approaches to long-term recovery. We will be looking at the developmental stages and tasks of recovery. There will be an experiential component as well as discussion.
